Vegan Double Chocolate and Peanut Butter Muffins

Muffins are great for when you want a reasonably easy dessert (or breakfast), as it’s just a case of whipping up the batter and putting them in the oven. Having a good, non-stick muffin tin is a must in my opinion. That way you can choose whether or not you want to use paper muffin cases (I chose not to with these). If you like big muffins, then I’d recommend filling the holes in your tin almost to the top with the batter, which will give them a nice mound after cooking. If you’re not a fan of peanut butter, then you can leave it out of these without really affecting the recipe.

Vegan Double Chocolate and Peanut Butter Muffins

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 18



  • 425 g self-raising flour
  • 50 g chickpea flour
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250 g sugar
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp mild chilli powder


  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 400 ml plant milk
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
  • 150 g dark chocolate chopped
  • Vegan butter for greasing

To top:

  • 100 g dark chocolate melted
  • A dusting of icing sugar


  • Preheat the oven to gas 5/190C/375F.
  • Put all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Now mix all of the wet ingredients together, including the chopped chocolate, and add to the dry. Stir fully with a fork until you have a smooth batter. Try not to over mix it.
  • Grease your muffin tin with the vegan butter, then use 2 spoons, or an ice cream scoop, to fill the holes in your muffin tin with the batter, almost to the top. Place the tin in the middle of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until risen and cooked through (you can check this by putting in a cocktail stick. It will come out clean when done).
  • Allow to completely cool, then drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and dust with the icing sugar.

To veganise something like Enchiladas now is incredibly easy with the variety of ingredients available in most supermarkets. For this one I have used fresh vegan mince, along with mushrooms and onions for the chilli base. Don’t worry if you don’t like eating vegan mince, you can always substitute this chilli for my Sweet Potato,…

Spanish Lentils with Vegan Chorizo and Black Pudding

I first tried this dish about 25 years ago, when my Spanish girlfriend made it for me in a bedsit we shared in North London back in the mid-nineties. It was cooked on one of those old Baby Belling stoves that you would often see in bedsits back in those days (they might still have…

Vegan Fudge Cookies
