Servings 11 muffins


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp oat flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour can substitute a generous cup of spelt flour, about 1 cup + 2-3 tbsp
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips or mini non-dairy chips (see note for oil-free)
  • 1 cup cup plain or vanilla non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla non-dairy yogurt
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • optional: 1/3 - 1/2 cup frozen blueberries or raspberries or 1/4 cup dried cherries0 (see note


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tray by lining with parchment liners (see note). In a large bowl, add flours, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon or nutmeg, and chips. Stir through until well combined. In another bowl, add milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, and vinegar or lemon juice. Stir to fully combine. Add wet ingredients to dry, and mix until just combined (do not overmix). If using frozen berries, add *just* before filling muffins cups, and briefly mix through. Use an ice cream scoop to fill muffin cups, filling 11. Bake for 23 minutes, checking for doneness at this time. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for a couple of minutes. Then, transfer muffins (in paper liners) to a cooling rack to cool further.


Note: When first making these muffins, I intended them to be a straight up chocolate chip muffin. But, I couldn’t resist the addition of frozen berries - especially blueberries! The combination is incredible. Often, I fill half the liners with the batter on its own without berries, then mix the berries into the remaining batter and continue to fill. That way, some plain chocolate chip muffins for a couple of family members, and berry ones for the others!
Blueberries Note: If you want to fill the entire batch with blueberries, you can use more frozen blueberries. When using frozen berries, they take a little longer to bake. So either give another minute of baking, or fill the liners less and make 12 muffins instead of 11.
Oil-Free Note: Most chocolate chips contain some oil. Try Nibble Chocolate (then chop/break up into pieces).
