Gluten Free and Vegan Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Dia's Gluten Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip MuffinsThese muffins come out very moist and creamy, which is down to the peanut milk. I made a pint of it last night specifically for these.

If you like the taste of Reese’s Pieces, you will love these muffins! The peanut milk compliments the chocolate much more than my usual oat milk, and it brings back some of those candy flavors we usually can no longer taste as vegans. Using peanut milk is also much more healthy than using peanut butter.
Dia's Gluten Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 cup peanut milk
3/4 cup vegan spread
2 tsp of vanilla essence
3/4 cup of unrefined caster sugar
150g bar of vegan milk chocolate
100g bag of dark chocolate chips
1 cup of rice flour
1 cup of oat flour
2 tsp of xanthan gum
1 tsp of baking soda
2 1/2 tsps of baking powder

Dia's Gluten Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit)
Mix the peanut milk, vegan spread and vanilla essence together.
In a separate bowl mix the rice and oat flours with the xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder and sugar.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon before adding the chocolate chips.
Melt the vegan milk chocolate in the microwave and then fold into the mixture.

Line a 12 muffin tin with cases.
Spoon in the muffin batter.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes (rotating tin after 10)
Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack where they will cool for a further 10 minutes.
Enjoy digging into these yummy muffins-they go well with coffee in the morning or tea in the afternoon.

    I love the pics! So cute! Peanut Milk, still don’t know about that. The idea may work for me.

    The pictures look delish…yummmm

    Very nice too – these are much moister than ordinary muffins and go well with my afternoon cuppa. The peanut flavour is unusual in a cake but I enjoyed it.

    What a wonderful recipe. How or where do you get oat flour?

  5. Gingercarrots

    Beautiful pics once again. Peanuts with chocolate are delicious.

    Thanks for your comments. I wanted to point out that I only had these jumbo muffin cases on hand, and so it makes the muffins look like they didn’t rise, when they did! I promise! They just look teeny tiny in those giant cases. :)

    Macroman, I make my own oat flour with an attachment on my Kenwood Chef. I got the Kenwood Chef as an early bday present a couple weeks ago, and it is soooo much fun. I couldn’t believe I used to do all that stuff by hand before. I do believe they sell oat flour at most health food stores like Whole Foods.

    Jen Jen, the peanut milk is great. I am so happy to have discovered it, I mean I know I didn’t invent it, it is just nice knowing I can make peanut milk instead of using oat milk all the time. It really makes anything I am baking moist and extra yummy!

    How interesting about the peanut milk. The tops of these muffins remind of those classic chocolate crinkle cookies rolled in powdered sugar.
