Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hi everyone!

This delicious new recipe for vegan gluten-free chocolate chip muffins is absolutely delicious. I have been wanting to make muffins like these for the longest time and I finally came up with the perfect recipes.

They are fluffy, soft, perfectly sweet, moist and are a chocolate lover’s dream! Basically, the wet ingredients get blended in the blender, the dry ingredients are whisked together in a bowl and are then combined to make the perfect healthy plant-based muffin batter. Pour into a muffin tin, top with chocolate chips, bake for 22 minutes and omg you will be obsessed.

These vegan gluten-free chocolate chip muffins are:






Perfectly sweet


Great for a snack or treat

They only take 22 minutes in the oven and the prep time will take you about 10-minutes. Easy desserts are my specialty so if you like a simple dessert recipe with just a couple steps, this muffin recipe will be right up your alley.

Common Questions:

What chocolate chips do you recommend?

I like Enjoy Life, Trader Joe’s semi sweet vegan chocolate chips or the vegan Lily’s chocolate chips – those are sweetened with stevia.

Can I replace the chocolate with anything?

Sure! Replace with blueberries, walnuts, or anything else you’d want! You could even add coconut to make coconut and pineaple to make tropical muffins!

How many muffins does this make?

This recipe yields 8 muffins so feel free to double the recipe if you’d like more than that.

Do I have to use all three kinds of flour?

Don’t have almond meal or gluten-free flour? Just use all oat flour.

Eat these vegan gluten-free chocolate chip muffins as a snack, treat, or even for breakfast. If I make these for breakfast I prefer blueberry muffins but you can totally have them for your breakfast too. Bring these to a potluck, enjoy them with friends and family, make them with your kids or just make to keep in the house for an easy snack. Each muffin is 250 calories. Each muffin is pretty big and hearty. 

If you want the muffins to have less calories, cut the chocolate chips in half.

Are you drooling yet?

I recommend using a non-stick muffin pan or parchment muffin liners. If you don’t have either, you’ll have to grease your pan! We don’t want the muffins sticking to the pan. When you go to take the muffins out if you didn’t use a parchment liner, just simply use a butter knife to remove.

    Good morning. I just stumbled upon your website. Everything looks amazing! Am I able to substitute regular flour for all your recipes? Or eggs? It’s the milk and butter I cannot have.
