Vegan Chocolate Walnut Muffins

These vegan chocolate muffins are super fluffy and studded with walnut pieces and lots of chocolate chips! They're an absolute crowd pleaser!

Imagine this. It's a cold winter's day and you're sitting on your couch drinking some tea and eating one of those delicious chocolate muffins! Isn't that a comforting thought? I wouldn't mind one right about now to be honest (especially since it's really chilly outside!!) so maybe I'll make some later with my son! After all, they are quick and easy to make!

These muffins are such a crowd pleaser! That is, if you love chocolate and nuts. In my opinion, it's a fabulous combination and I love the crunch of nuts in baked goods! Different textures is one of my most favorite things when cooking (and eating) and biting on one of the pieces of walnuts just makes me happy. To be fair, walnuts are my favorite nuts!

If you're not big on walnuts (like my son), you could substitue them for other nuts like hazelnuts or even peanuts. It will change the flavor profile a bit but I'm sure it will still be really yummy!

The base recipe for these muffins contains my tried and tested mixture of pudding powder and yogurt. That results in fluffy, yet moist muffins that will disappear faster than you can imagine!

I mean, look at them! Don't they just scream winter time?!

Will you bake these muffins soon? Or how about my Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins?
