Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins
I have been craving chocolate chips muffins for some time now and while I researched the recipe ingredients, I came across another use for avocado-to replace oil in a recipe. I was worried because avo is not a liquid like oil so I thought that I would need to add alot of milk, hence the undercooked result when I baked them the first time.
So, I used avocado, unsweetened applesauce, rolled oats and coconut sugar as the main ingredients for these muffins...I guess I had to balance all that healthy stuff with an overdose of chocolate chips, which is exactly what happened (I used Enjoy Life brand giant choco chips and the muffins were exploding with chocolate!)
So, I'm publishing this blog a day early because of my computer. I have the Blogger app on my phone so I can blog anywhere but I can't rearrange the photos the way I like on the phone. I'm sure you don't mind this deliciousness the night before.
2 cups of oat flour (2 cups of rolled oats in the food processor)
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
1 big avocado, mashed
6 oz of unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of coconut milk
1/2 bag or 1 cup of chocolate chips (Enjoy Life Brand)
Enjoy!!! I ate waaaaaay too much of these over the weekend.
