Flourless Vegan Chocolate Blender Muffins…a healthy Vitamix recipe that’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, flourless, egg-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
I have a new blender muffin recipe to share with you today…my Flourless Vegan Chocolate Blender Muffins!
They are based off my Flourless Vegan Lemon Blueberry Muffins that I posted a couple of weeks ago and these are filled with chocolate-y goodness.
I make the base for my blender muffins with my Vitamix and for these, added in the cacao powder and chocolate chips.
What can you expect when making a flourless, vegan muffin?
If you’ve never made a flourless, vegan, egg-less recipe before, you need to know that they will not be “light and fluffy” like a traditional muffin.
They are dense, moist but will hold together well. And, it’s important that you let them cool completely before serving them to give them time to firm up.
Traditional chocolate muffins contain white flour, white sugar and eggs.
