Get the lowdown on how Catherine created these guilt-free muffins and find the recipe below to make them yourself.

I have to be honest, I am new to vegan baking, and I am never quite sure what to expect when I first make an attempt to “veganize” a baked good. This one was no different, I was using my luscious conventional dark chocolate cake recipe as the starting point, and I had the feeling this was going to be a futile attempt! I could not have been more wrong! Seriously, I could not believe it when these muffins came out of the oven! They rose nicely, then deflated some once they cooled down, but in doing so, created a rich, dense chocolaty texture that makes them absolutely luscious–I think you can tell from the picture! They might as well be birthday cupcakes – you could top them with a little drizzle of my homemade Chocolate “Fudge” Sauce, to dress them up more if you’d like, but really you don’t even need it–they are perfect just as is! 

Watch me make it in my kitchen–here!
