Yesterday was QUITE the day. While I’ve been running EDS since undergrad, I can confidently say that I’m not as tech savvy as I appear and learned so much yesterday. There are many aspects of running a website that go on behind the scenes and more so protecting it. EDS was unfortunately hacked yesterday and was an eye opening experience to how pervasive this problem is.
As of today we are up and running, but still working out some remaining kinks as once they get in, you need to do an invasive clean up to make sure everything is gone. For those who came to EDS to find amazing vegan eats and weren’t able to access everything, my apologies! Lettuce pray that EDS runs like a well oiled machined that’s protected to maximum capacity.
Now let’s talk muffins!
If you know me, the weekends call for a fab muffin. While I love to mix it up with fresh modern flavors, you have to cover the basics and these vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins were a must!
What’s fab about these muffins, is everything! It’s my quick and easy staple muffin recipe, affordable, perf for any season, butter soft, packed with chips, great for entertaining, and has been a great treat to have on hand when I want a bite of something sweet!
If you love all things chocolate or crave that perf vegan muffin, this is it! You have to try these vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins!!
Heat oven to 375 degrees F., line 8 standard-size muffin cups with paper liners. For standard-size muffins line 10 muffin cups. (optional) Fill the remaining cups with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to help the muffins bake evenly.
Add melted coconut oil, sugar, mashed banana, almond milk and vanilla extract to a bowl and whisk until smooth. If the mixture is too cold and coconut oil begins to solidify, simply pop in the microwave for a few seconds.
Add wet to dry ingredients and lightly combine. Do not over mix. (The muffin batter will be quite thick) Fold in the chocolate chips.
Fill batter into the muffin cups. Top with additional chipsBake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean.
The larger you make the muffins the longer it will take to cook thru.
If the tops begin to dry out simply make a tent with aluminum foil and continue baking. I do this with all muffins to preserve the tops!
