Ⓥ Vegan Kitchen: Flour-less "Muffins" Ⓥ

My lovely husband threw this recipe together randomly one afternoon. It was one of those make-as-you-go things, with no pre-meditating or anything, just decided to go for it. I was skeptical, knowing he'd just thrown it all together--without even measuring anything out! The second batch I made with his help, making sure to measure everything out so that I could share this lovely recipe with all of you. :)

They are sooooo yummy I can't believe it! As usual, wheat-free, gluten-free (use gluten-free oats), and Vegan!! :) 

Flour-Less Muffins:

3 Apples, cored and cut into a few pieces. 
1 cup Dates (pitted)
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Flax seeds
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup Carob Chips
2 1/2 cup Quick Oats
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder

In food processor, process 2 apples until a more gritted texture is achieved. Add the dates and process again. Add peanut butter and cinnamon, process until a thick paste-like texture is achieved. 
Pour processed mix into a large mixing bowl with the Oats, Flax, Baking Soda, and Baking Powder and stir until mixture is a "batter" like consistency. 
Process last Apple into small "chunks." Add to batter. Add the Carob Chips. Mix again. 

Lightly oil Muffin Tray and pour mixture into tray. 

Preheat Oven to 325° and bake for approximately 20 minutes, increading temperature to 350° at about 12 minutes. (these will rise only a little bit as lots of gluten-free stuff). 

Makes approx. 7 Muffins. 
Sorry, this recipe makes a strange number, you can double the recipe depending on how big your muffin tray is and have bigger muffins or make smaller ones or be strange like me and have a strange number ;)
Either way, these muffins are sooooo good, and healthy at that! ^_^

  1. They sound really really yummy! What a great improvisation!

  2. This sounds super yummy! Where in the store are carob chips located? I printed this out and your beautiful pic is with the recipe as well! <3

  3. hmmm. I usually buy carob chips in bulk at our organic grocery store, I imagine most grocery stores would carry them though in their natural foods department?

    oh also, if you want a full tray of muffins instead of the strange "7" (lol) just add a little bit more of everything. I made them again the other day and got a full tray. Also, I tried to take them out of the pan too early and they were kinda crumbly so it's important to let them sit for probably 20minutes after you take them out of the oven ;)

  4. Thanks so much for the info and tips! I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow and will get the ingredients. I had your recipe printed out by the computer and Avery asked when I was making them, they looked yummy! I wish I had an organic Grocery store closer to me but we do have a Wegmans and they have a big organic section so I'll try there!
    :) <3

  5. I just had to say these muffins are AMAZING! Love them for breakfast to jump start my day! Thanks Bianca! <3
