A super easy Chocolate Muffin recipe, simple enough for kids to make. Gluten & Dairy free!
Serves: 12
  • 220g / 1.5 cups gluten free plain flour
  • 40g / 0.25 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 100g / 0.5 cups sugar
  • 30g / 0.25 cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 100g / 0.5 cup apple sauce
  • 180ml / 0.75 cups non dairy milk
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f and line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl and mix with a spoon.
  3. Add the sugar and chocolate chips and mix again.
  4. In a second bowl mix together the apple sauce, milk, egg and vanilla extract with a hand whisk or spoon.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix again, just enough so that everything is well combined.
  6. Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases and bake in the centre of the oven for 17-20 minutes until they are cooked through and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out dry.
  7. Allow to cool on a wire rack and either serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
