Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins: rich, deep dark vegan chocolate muffins with a beautiful rise. Dairy-Free.
Okay, so who’s excited for the new year? I mean, we could totally use a fresh start, amiright?? Are you already crossing ALL the new year’s resolutions off of your list (woah) or, like me, still letting a few percolate, while the others are pretty much lost causes?
A few years back, one of my new year’s resolutions was to share more tasty and secretly healthy muffins with you. And guess what? Today’s gluten free chocolate muffins fit the bill, like woah!
Today’s recipe not only qualifies as vegan chocolate muffins, but also as gluten free dairy free muffins. Yaaaaaas! These chocolate muffins are refined sugar-free, and made with whole ingredients. Plus, they’re downright tasty.
Are you ready to bake this? Let’s do it!
How to Make Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins
First things first, make sure to preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, drop a muffin liner into each cup of your 12-cup muffin pan.
Sift the Dry Ingredients
Using a large bowl, sift together all of the dry ingredients: oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
Because we’re working with coconut oil, we gotta make sure that we don’t expose it to anything cold—here’s looking at you, milk + water! So let’s heat our dairy-free milk and water together until just warm.
Whisk the Wet Ingredients
Now, let’s add the warm milk + water and the rest of the wet ingredients to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk it altogether until well incorporated. Congrats! You just made your gluten free chocolate muffin batter. So easy, right?
Pour your vegan chocolate muffins batter into the muffin pan you prepared earlier. Fill each cup up about ¾ of the way for a higher quantity of smaller muffins, or all the way for a lower quantity of large muffins!
Bake, Cool, and Enjoy!
Bake vegan chocolate muffins for about 30 minutes. Cool and enjoy the best gluten free chocolate muffins ever!

Storing and Freezing Vegan Chocolate Muffins
After completely cooling your vegan chocolate muffins, place them into an airtight container and store them in a cool, dark environment. You can keep your vegan chocolate muffins for up to 1 week.
These gluten free chocolate muffins freeze well. Just remember to cool your muffins completely, then tuck them into a freezer-friendly container. Keep dairy free muffins for 1-2 months.
Jo says, “I have tried so many healthy recipes from different blogs over the past 2-3 years (banana bread, vegan cheesecake, muffins of all sorts), but this recipe has got to be one of my best baking adventures. The muffins are moist, dark, fudgy, and delicious. I did use olive oil instead of coconut oil, and it still worked. Thank you, queen.”
Jaclyn says, “Delicious!!!!! Fluffy and a hint of sweet! These will be going in my muffin rotation!!”
Pashlee says, “My kids loved these! I swapped some of the cocoa powder for protein powder and used monk fruit instead of coconut sugar.”
Mel says, “I just baked these for the 2nd time and they are delicious! I’m looking for a coconut cream frosting to make for the top this time. Last time we just drizzled a bit of maple syrup on top–yummy! Thank you!!”
Jen says, “Great recipe! Subbed out the oil for applesauce. Doubled the recipe & it made 20. Thank you for a quick & easy recipe.”

Great Tools for the Best Vegan Chocolate Muffins
- Raw Cacao Powder – my favorite, nutritent-rich cacao powder. It works just like the traditional unsweetened cocoa powder you know, but it’s packed with nutrients. This raw cacao powder is so high-quality and boasts deep, rich chocolate flavor.
- Unbleached Muffin Liners – my go-to muffin liners. These guys stick just the right amount to your muffins so they stay on while the muffins cool. Bonus? They’re unbleached!
- Coconut Sugar – a staple in my gluten free vegan baking pantry. I use coconut sugar to keep the recipe refined sugar-free.
So whaddya say, wanna join me in new year’s reso-luting the fudge out of homemade vegan chocolate muffins this year? 🙂 I’m so grateful to share in these joyful kitchen adventures with you and your loved ones. ‘Til the next one…
Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️
