Maple Tahini Double Chocolate Muffins are Delicious!
These have a double dose of chocolate, which is just the right amount! There’s cocoa powder in the batter and then chocolate chips mixed in! Tahini in place of the oil adds a nutty, more complex flavor.
I also drizzled a bit of tahini over the top which was a last-minute tasty addition. The maple syrup is lovely as a sweetener and adds a slightly different, richer flavor as does brown sugar.
At the last minute, I threw on some additional chocolate chips and a drizzle of tahini. The baked tahini looks kind of weird, tbh, but it tastes great.
These mix up in just a few minutes. Just stir together the dry ingredients. So, technically, sugar is a wet ingredient when it comes to baking but I did add it into the flour and cocoa powder. I think it can be done either way.
The wet ingredients are mainly tahini, maple syrup. and applesauce. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
Then stir in the yummy chocolate chips.
Gluten-Free Flour for Vegan Baking
I have previously used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour. It works really well and was so easy to use. For some reason it’s gotten more difficult to find, especially locally. so I made up my own blend. You can try making your own by following this recipe.
Back to the muffin recipe, So these are made pretty much like any other. Once the wet and dry ingredients are mixed together, I mixed in the chocolate chips.
Then spoon the batter into 6 to 8 regular muffin cups or 4 of the giant ones!
I really like the texture of these. I think the tahini and brown sugar make these super rich. Or maybe I just really like chocolate muffins!
