Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins (Grainless & Dairy-free)

So, I have a confession to make…I’m not a very good baker.  Sure, I can whip up a boxed of pre put together goods and add the necessary ingredients usually water and eggs and have no problem.

I’m talking about pure scratch…baking – “off roading” style. It’s gotten me in trouble more than once. Like the first time I tried to make homemade gluten-free bread. I actually set my mixer on fire (yes, it is possible) and the kitchen was full of smoke when my husband walked in and I handed him loaf of bread that could been better used as a door stopper than for sandwich slices. (True Story)

This fail along with several others put me in the “I’m going to stick to the pre-box baked goods” for a few years. I was so tired of my food looking nice but tasting bad or tasting wonderful but looking so awful that no one would want to try it.

For me, it really is a miracle when something turns out edible and looks great or even normal too.

I do try to cut myself some slack when I think about that my baked goods need to be gluten-free, dairy-free, using only natural sugars and no eggs (if I want my hubby to enjoy). It’s definitely a tall order.

It’s one thing to deny ourselves as adults the need/desire for delicious baked goods but it’s another to deny little children. Allergy friendly baked goods are hard to come by and when you do – be ready to pay an arm and leg to enjoy them. This year you can definitely expect a focus on healthy allergy-friendly baked goodies. 🙂

So, you can imagine my EXCITEMENT when my husband told me that this Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins were the best muffins I have ever made. My husband rarely gets excited about food. While I dream about food and get food cravings looking at food – he has literally ZERO emotional connection to it. Zilch, nada…until these bad boys came around.

These are literally, “Get in my tummy now” level of greatness!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins (Grain-free & Dairy-Free)
Prep Time:
10 minutes
Cook Time:
25 minutes
Total Time:
35 minutes
Yield: 12
  • 1 cup of coconut flour
  • 1 cup of nondairy milk
  • 1 cup nondairy chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Dark Morsels)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 6 non eggs (I used Ener-G egg Replacer)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. First, mix all of your dry ingredients: coconut flour, sea salt, cacao powder and baking soda.
  3. In a separate bowl, prepare your Ener-G egg replacer. I used 1 tsp egg replacer to every 2 tbsp water. You will want 6 tsp. of egg replacer total and 12 tbsp. water. Make sure egg replacer is well mixed.
  4. Next, add your egg replacer, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, and milk to your flour mixture.
  5. Once your mixture is well blended stir in your chocolate chips and chia seeds.
  6. Scoop your chocolate chip muffin mixture into a greased muffin pan.
  7. Top each muffin with 3-4 chocolate chips on the very top.
  8. Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes or until fork clean.
  9. While muffins are still warm, take a butter knife and spread the semi melted chocolate chips to make a light glaze on top of each muffin.

  1. Hi recipe sounds really yummy – instead of non dairy can you use soya milk? Or normal milk (if baking for someone without allergy ? + normal choc chips? If using eggs (for someone no allergic how many eggs would one use? Can you use ordinary flour or self raising flour instead of coconut flour? These would be for my hubby – much Appreciate your reply tx Lyn. (Sorry about all your stress helping your hubby but at least that will be alleviated soon + can spend wonderful time with children again. Xxx

    1. Hi Lyn, great questions. You can definitely use regular or soy milk, regular chocolate chips and real eggs. Just use six eggs. I do not recommend using any other flour though. Coconut flour is highly absorbent so if you swap the flour out but keep all the ratios the same – your muffins probably wouldn’t bake in the middle. Thanks for the well wishes. Already, feeling a lot less stressed.

  2. If I choose to use eggs instead of the Egg Replacer, how many eggs would I need to use for the recipe. This looks delicious and I am excited to try these muffins.

  3. Hi, Allison, just had a question about this recipe (which I definitely want to try). Can I use regular eggs instead of the non-eggs, and would I use the whole egg? And how many – 6?

  4. This looks really good and I can’t wait to try it. I was wondering. I don’t have a problem with real eggs so if I use real eggs how many would I use. ? Thank you for always sharing theses awesome recipes.

  5. That ingredient list doesn’t sound or look right. With only one cup of flour, you’re going to have a runny soup mix instead of a batter. Are you sure you have enough flour in this recipe?

    1. Greg, you bring up a great point. It’s probably something I should have addressed in the post. You are right when you say the ratio seems off. However, something I didn’t realized until I started playing with coconut flour is that it is highly absorbent. So, anytime you just use coconut flour you in baked good goods you need a ton of eggs to make sure that whatever you are baking will not dry out and will also rise.

  6. Hi Allison; it’s great to know you will be more relaxed from much work. But I admire you for the good person you are as a wife, mother and human. You will be rewarded by the Holy Spirit. Children are good observers and you have two. Beautiful angel children. I could not answer you before due to a pain in my lower back, The muffin is fantastic and. Yours is so tempting Umm , I will do it and let you know how it came out, Thanks a lot , God bless you always and your family, XXXXl
