Vegan Chocolate Cherry Muffins
These Chocolate Cherry Muffins with aquafaba are vegan, of course, but they are also made without any added oil, naturally sweetened with maple syrup, and they are wholegrain. They are moist, fluffy, and studded with ripe, sweet, juicy cherries in every bite.
Servings: 12 muffins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin/cupcake liners.
In a large bowl, mix the flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
To a smaller bowl, add the wet ingredients -- aquafaba, applesauce, milk, maple syrup and vinegar. Whisk together to mix well. Add the cherries and mix.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until incorporated. Don't overmix.
Divide the batter equally among the muffin cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove the muffins to a rack to cool.
- For an even more chocolatey variation, stir in 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips.
