Double Chocolate Caramel Muffins

I am SO STOKED to share this recipe with you guys! :) There are a lot of ingredients, but I promise that these muffins are really easy to make. This is what they look like with half the chocolate batter in the muffin tins, & all of the caramel sauce.

...topped with the other half of the chocolate batter, & the muffins are ready for baking!

All done! No gluten, soy, nuts, sugar, dairy or eggs! Who says vegans eat boring food? :) These are best served warm! Ooey, gooey, caramel center <3 Much love, xo

From my decadent kitchen to yours <3

1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 tsp xantham gum
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbs shredded coconut, unsweetened
pinch sea salt

3 tbs maple syrup
2 tbs flaxmeal
3 tbs water
3 tbs liquid coconut oil
1 tbs vanilla
1/4 cup almond mylk
2 large ripe bananas, peeled & mashed

1/4 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips (or regular ones, if you're okay with sugar)
1 batch caramel sauce

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2) Sift together all the dry ingredients; set aside.
3) In a separate bowl, whisk together the first 3 wet ingredients. Slowly whisk in the coconut oil & vanilla extract.
4) Beat almond mylk & bananas in with the rest of the wet ingredients until smooth.
5) Fold in the wet ingredients with the dry until well-combined. Carefully stir in the chocolate chips.
6) Spread half the muffin batter evenly in your muffin pan. Top each muffin with caramel sauce, & then more chocolate batter.
7) Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before consuming (if you can wait that long!)
8) nom nom nom :)

peace, love, food <3
Char, xo
