How to Make Chocolate Vegan Pumpkin Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Put liners in muffin pan if you have them, otherwise grease it.
  3. In a large bowl add 1 cup pumpkin, replacement for 1 egg, and 1 tsp vanilla. Whisk until mixed well.
  4. Use a spatula to stir in 2 tbsp cocoa powder and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. Then stir in ½ tsp salt and 1⅛ tsp baking soda.
  5. Add 1⅔ cup flour, stir until just combined, careful not to over stir. Distribute batter evenly in muffin pan.
  6. Top muffins with Vegan chocolate chips, and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean, then let them rest and cool for at least 10 minutes. If they rest long enough they come out of the muffin pan and liners more cleanly.

Flavor Option: To have these muffins taste more like pumpkin pie and less chocolatey, you could try using 1 tbsp cocoa powder instead of 2 tbsp, and use 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice instead of 1 tsp.  We want to try it this way next time!

Chocolate Vegan Pumpkin Muffins recipe

We want to try to make these chocolate Vegan pumpkin muffins again in the future with a different variation. We are planning to cut the cocoa powder in half (from 2 tbsp to 1 tbsp), and adjust the pumpkin pie spice to 1 tbsp (from 1 tsp). We think that combination would taste pretty unique, and we’re pretty excited to give it a whirl! 

Give these pumpkin muffins a try!  You won’t regret it!
