Super fluffy, tender, moist and HEALTHY Chocolate Muffins. They are Naturally Sweetened: Apples and Date Paste. So EASY to make, with LESS than 10 INGREDIENTS and insanely delicious.
- 1 medium apple (180g)
- 2/3 cup Date Paste
- 1 cup vegetable milk
- 3 flax eggs (1 flax egg = 1 tbsp ground flax seeds (7g)+ 3 tbsp water)
- 1/2 cup EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat/spelt flour
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp baking powder (16g)
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 60g cherries
- Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
- Cook apples: Peel them, cut in 0.5cm pieces and cook them in hot water or in the microwave (5 minutes) until soft.
- Mix wet ingredients: Cooked apples and Date Paste - you can follow our recipe Healthy Sweetener Date Paste, milk (we use soy), oil and flax eggs. You can also blend them until smooth.
- Mix dry ingredients: Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Mix wet and dry ingredients and add cut cherries into pieces.
- Transfer the batter to a greased muffin pan and bake it 180°C for 25 minutes. Let cool before removing the muffins from the pan.
TIP: You can make our Healthy Frosting adding 1 tbsp of cacao powder to make a chocolate frosting.
You can add more cherries but keep in mind that the texture of the muffins would change because the fruit moistens the batter.
