Total Time: 40 minutes

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.


Wet ingredients

  • 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)

Dry ingredients

  • 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Cook apples: Peel them, cut in 0.5cm pieces and cook them in hot water or in the microwave (5 minutes) until soft.
  3. 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.
  4. Mix dry ingredients: Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. Mix wet and dry ingredients and add cut cherries into pieces.
  6. 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.
