GINGER LEMON GIRL’S GLUTEN FREE VEGAN DARK CHOCOLATE MUFFINS
Ginger Lemon Girl’s Gluten Free Vegan Dark Chocolate Muffins
I got this recipe from Carrie Forbes from Ginger Lemon Girl. This was Recipe #23 in the "Gluten Free Baking With KitchenAid" event. So let's sample one of Carrie's incredible recipes. Let me say right out of the chute that these gluten free vegan chocolate muffins are VERY hard to quit eating! So just know that from the very beginning. Vegan muffins that have chocolate in them? I am IN every day of the week and twice on Sundays; and if Ginger Lemon Girl created the recipe, count me in forever! I joke, but these muffins really are that good. These vegan muffins taste amazing and are also gluten free, dairy/casein free, soy free, corn free, egg free, rice free, and yeast free. You gotta love that! Now, please note that these muffins are a bit crumbly because they do not contain any xanthan gum or guar gum. You can add 1/2 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon for a more traditional muffin texture, which is what I did. Also, for the best results, allow these muffins to rest on a wire rack to cool completely. Carrie says, "The taste of these muffins actually reminds me of an Oreo cookie. Deeply chocolate, with just a touch of sweetness." Now that revelation might get in the way of your ability to wait for these muffins to cool completely before diving in. I must confess, Scott and I burnt our tongues sampling these babies! LOL!
