say hello to your newest obsession, Vegan and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Caramel Muffins! they’re perfect in every way and you won’t believe they’re vegan AND gluten-free.
who doesn’t love a super fluffy and chocolately muffin with caramel on top?!
the caramel is SO easy to make and it’s made with cashew butter, maple, syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
you can totally swap the cashew butter for something else, it just happens to be the nut butter i had on hand!
peanut butter and almond butter would also be super delicious. you could even try using tahini or sunbutter!
there are lots of chocolate chips in these muffins and that’s just the way i like ’em!
you can go easier on the chocolate chips if you want but i was definitely going for decadence.
the deliciously fluffy and light texture comes from a combination of almond flour and gluten free all purpose flour. for this specific recipe, i used the gf flour from trader joe’s.
other ingredients like dairy free yogurt and applesauce make the texture nice and light!
the base is sweetened with both maple syrup and coconut sugar, both of which you will need 1/4 cup.
since the base of Vegan and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Caramel Muffins is versatile and pretty neutral, you can swap out the chocolate chips for blueberries or something else if you’re looking for muffins a little on the healthier side.
