Difficulty Easy


  • 12 Cup muffin pan
  • 12 Paper or silicone muffin cups


  • 180 g All-purpose flour
  • 150 g White sugar
  • 4 tbsp Bitter cocoa
  • 80 g Extra dark chocolate
  • 6 tbsp Sunflower oil
  • 250ml ml Soy milk with no-sugar
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 6 g Cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Coconut flour


  • Grate the extra dark chocolate, or mince using the food processor.
  • To a large bowl, add the dry ingredients: the flour, the cornstarch, the sugar, the cocoa, the extra dark chocolate and mix well. Set aside. To a separate bowl add the liquid ingredients: the soy milk and the sunflower oil. Mix well.
    Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined in a soft batter.
  • Take a glass, add the apple cider vinegar and the cream of tartar, mix and quickly pour over the batter. Stir well.
  • Insert the paper or silicone muffin cups into the pan. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with some coconut flour.
  • Bake in a preheated oven on 180°C. for 30-35 minutes. Set aside to cool down.


I normally use the soy milk with no sugar for this recipe but any kind of plant-based milk can be used.
Sometimes I add at the obtained batter some walnuts or hazelnuts, that I collected in the woods behind my house.
Coconut flour gives a few of color and an interesting aftertaste, but not everyone likes it. The recipe also works well without coconut flour.
