  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour spoon and level
  • 1 cup Organic Cane Sugar
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Vegan Chocolate Chunks I used half dark & half semi-sweet
  • ½ cup Room Temperature Apple Sauce
  • ½ cup Room Temperature Unsweetened Vegan Yogurt
  • ½ cup Room Temperature Plant Milk
  • ½ cup Good Quality Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Line a 12-count muffin pan with cupcake liners or grease.
  • NoteYou want the wet ingredients to be room temperature. I simply sat the non-dairy milk, yogurt and applesauce on top of my oven while it preheated. Just make sure they aren't cold to the touch. 
  • Spoon and level the all purpose flour in to the measuring cup and add to a large bowl. Whisk in the organic cane sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Stir in your chocolate chunks to the dry mixture and set aside. I enjoy mixing half dark chocolate and half semi-sweet to these muffins. 
  • Whisk together the room temperature apple sauce, unsweetened vegan yogurt, plant milk, olive oil and apple cider vinegar in a separate bowl.
  • Add the wet mixture in to the dry and mix until just combined. Be sure not to over-mix.
  • Divide the batter in to the muffin pan. It's about a heaping ¼ cup per muffin.
  • Bake at 425F for 5 minutes and then without opening the oven turn the heat down to 350F and continue to cook for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or the muffins bounce back when gently pressed. Be careful not over bake.
  • Let cool and enjoy!


Wrap leftover muffins in cling wrap or in a container and freeze. Simply reheat in the oven or microwave and enjoy warm.
