Looking for a mid-week treat? I have got you covered with these moist vegan chocolate raspberry banana muffins!
Gluten-free, super moist, and loaded with gooey chocolate chips and fresh raspberries, these vegan muffins are also acceptable for breakfast. Let’s bake!
If you have tried my Cream Cheese Banana Bread, this recipe will look similar as I use the same batter here.
The batter requires a mix of three flours: oat flour, almond flour, and white rice flour. This mix makes the muffins soft and fluffy, and as opposed to many other gluten-free blends, they are not gritty at all.
Next, we have cocoa powder AND chocolate chips for that double chocolate factor. Finally, to sweeten the muffins, I went with ripe bananas that also add moisture and coconut sugar. Don’t worry. You can’t taste the bananas that much.
You simply mix everything together until you get a smooth and thick batter before folding in a generous handful of raspberries. I prefer to fold in the raspberries at the end and not overmix them; otherwise, they will get mashed. Feel free to use fresh or frozen raspberries. Both work well.
The final step is to fill cupcake liners with the batter and throw it in the oven!
Twenty minutes later, your kitchen should have a wonderful chocolate smell, and your little muffins should have puffed. It’s time to let these big boys cool down before removing them from the pan.
Can you see those melty chocolate chips and juicy raspberries?!
The raspberries not only add freshness but also makes these muffins lighter and fluffier. Plus, the combination of raspberry + chocolate never fails. If you like to combine fruits and chocolate, you should definitely try these vegan chocolate raspberry banana muffins!
