orange muffins with chocochips
Got to love the smell of fresh baked goods. But it’s not something you can have everyday. Most baked goods are high in fat and sugar. Well, not these. These are packed with protein, almost sugar free (thanks to the agave nectar) and low in fat – 2 TS of oil for 12 muffins aint that much… right (if you omit the chocolate chips of course)? But chocolate is good for your heart and researches say that 10 gr of chocolate daily can keep heart attack risk at bay. Well these have about 6 gr of chocolate each! Enjoy them with a cup of hot tea. I like them hot while the chocolate is still melting but they taste awesome even when you let them cool.
1 cup and 1 TS whole wheat all purpose flour1 TS corn starch
1 TS potato starch
1 TS tapioca flour
1/2 ts baking powder
1/2 ts baking soda
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 ts orange zest
1/2 cup light agave nectar
2-3 TS olive oil
50 gr vegan dark chocolate chips for the muffins plus 20 gr for garnish
Preheat the oven at 180c/350 F. Blend all ingredients (except the 20gr of chocolate that you will use to garnish). Fill the 2/3rds of 12 muffin liners, top with the chocolate chips and bake for 20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes clean).
