  • 1 mixer
  • 1 muffin tin
  • 1 Oven
  • 1 cooling rack


  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk I used cashew milk but almond milk will work too
  • 1 large banana mashed, leaving some whole pieces.
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chunks or chips I use Enjoy Life brand


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (176C) and grease and flour or line a muffin tin with liners
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and sugar together until well blended and the cocoa is evenly distributed.
  • Add the apple sauce, vanilla, coconut oil, and non-dairy milk and stir until just combined. Don’t overdo it or the batter will get tough. Gently fold in the banana and chocolate chips until evenly combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin tins until ¾ of the way full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the tops are puffy and cracked and they spring back when gently pressed.
  • Cool on a wire rack for five minutes and then remove the muffins from the tin and cool on the rack until they’re cool enough to eat.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to two days or freeze for up to a month.
