Vegan spelt chocolate chip pumpkin muffins!

on 22/09/2015

This afternoon, I made these delicious easy to make vegan whole grain spelt pumpkin chocolate chip muffins !!! Yeah! That is right! That is a mouthful, hey? I made them not so sweet so you can eat them as a lovely portable breakfast, a healthy snack or a nice dessert! Check them out!

YUM!

These are also great to give as a nice lovely Food gift, for a loved one! 😉 I used my silicon flower-shaped baking mats again! My muffin holes are a big bigger than normal-size muffin tins!

Recipe: For 15 bigger flower-shaped muffins

Ingredients:

* Dry ingredients:

3 cups whole grain spelt flour, I use organic British whole grain spelt flour from Sharpham’s Park

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ras-el-hanout

1 teaspoon ground mace

1/2 cup coconut sugar

to fold in at the last moment: 1 cup vegan dark chocolate chips

* Wet ingredients:

2 cups pumpkin purée ( home-made or from a can )

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk

1 teaspoon sherry vanilla extract

2 tablespoons maple syrup, grade C

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 180° C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Adjust your oven to the right temperature.

2. Take a larger bowl & add all dry ingredients in it, except the chocolate chips! Mingle everything together with a spoon. Set aside. Take another smaller bowl & add all the wet ingredients in it. Mix with a smaller whisk everything together until fully joined. Now, add wet ingredients to the bowl with dry ingredients. Mix gently everything together. At the last moment, fold in your chocolate chips. Do this in 2 batches.

3. Take 2 oven racks. Place a Silpat on every rack, for stability & fill your flower-shaped muffin mats with 3/4 go the batter. See that you have chocolate chips into every flower. When all the batter is used up, carefully shake your mats a bit so that the unwanted air can go away. So, you won’t have any air bubbles into your muffins! Place into the lower center of your oven & bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the tops are browned & the muffins are cooked through. test with a smaller wooden pin into the center of a few muffins. If done, take them out of the oven & leave them in the silicon mats, for at least 10 minutes. This will give them their lovely shine & flower pattern. After 10 minutes, carefully flip the muffins over & place them on a wire rack to cool down a bit or pop one in your mouth,…carefully not to burn yourself! 🙂 If you savor one, the inside will be like the muffin in the 1st picture! These are very healthy muffins, whole grain spelt is so good for you, not so sweet but just right! I will tell that you want another one,…for sure,…Go on, indulge yourself,…You so deserve it! 😉 xxx

    These look wonderful!… I haven’t heard of ground ras-el-hanout before and google wasn’t much help. What kind of flavour is it? And if I can’t find it here could another spice be substituted?

  5. Angie@Angie's Recipes says:

    They look absolutely delicious, Sophie. Ras-el-hanout is new to me..

  6. Hi Sophie! Thanks for always been so supportive of my blog! 😀 I’m really loving your recipes, there’s always something for everyone. 🙂

    P.S – I love the idea of beetroot desserts! Also, I love the look of your raw chocolate pudding! I’ve only recently tried avocado chocolate mousse, but I prefer your recipe as it doesn’t use refined sugars, just those lovely dates. 🙂
