double chocolate muffins {gluten-free + vegan} + a cookbook giveaway!

double chocolate muffins {gluten-free + vegan}

I've been a little bit of a cookbook fiend lately. It all started when I brought myself a few new ones for my birthday, then I received The Sprouted Kitchen from my best friend back home in New Zealand, a lovely little surprise found on the doorstep one afternoon early last week. And lastly I recently received a complimentary copy of Great Gluten-free Vegan Eats by Allyson Kramer of Manifest Vegan fame. Phew! All my dreams have come true, haha.

Now before you get all mad at me for being such a lucky girl, I'll let you in on something really cool... I also have one hard copy of Allyson's book and 5 digital copies to give away to you my dear readers, compliments of Fair Winds Press.

double chocolate muffins {gluten-free + vegan}

Being vegetarian and mostly dairy-free I love getting inspiration from vegan cookbooks, however I find all to often that vegan cookbooks are all about trying to recreate meat dishes, minus the meat... if you know what I mean? Allyson did grow up eating meat, so sure there are a few reworked meat classics like (mushroom) stroganoff and vegies and dumplings (without the chicken) but there are also loads of recipes that are just plain good food, regardless of the label they carry. I've got a bunch of recipes bookmarked to try including; potato dosa (one of my all-time favourite Indian foods), black bean, potato + cheese enchiladas and Wendi's zesty black-eyed pea salad. Another thing I find with many vegan cookbooks is that they tend to be loaded with egg-replacers and loads of soy products. Allyson, like me, uses almond milk as her main non-dairy milk and coconut milk and oil pop up often too, while flaxmeal is used as her main egg replacer.

Whole grain gluten-free flours are used throughout the book (although I do have to mention that sorghum flour is not always the easiest flour to come across in Australia or New Zealand) and as usual I have a number of sweet recipes that I'm keen to try out including; dark chocolate chipotle cake, avocado gelato, banana berry cobbler and chocolate salted caramels. Yum! 

The first recipe I've made from the book were these rich chocolatey muffins you see below. I've made just a few minor changes to the original recipe, cutting the recipe in half, swapping in chia seeds for the xanthan gum and re-wording the recipe a little bit. With their brownie-like texture they were gobbled up in no time at all, and Ada instantly asked me if I would be making them again any time soon...

Right, to be in the draw to win your very own copy of Great Gluten-free Vegan Eats simply leave a comment below before 8pm Sunday the 23th September (Perth, Western Australia time). I will use to pick 6 names, the first name drawn will receive the hard copy and the next 5 people will get the book in digital form. Anonymous comments will be accepted, however please make sure you leave your name at the end of the comment so I know who you are. Open to readers worldwide. Good luck!

This is half of Allyson's recipe as 8 muffins is plenty for us to eat. I've also used chia seeds in place of the xanthan gum used in the original recipe. If you'd rather use that, add 1/2 teaspoon with the dry ingredients and omit the soaked chia seeds. As always I used Whittakers dark chocolate, which contains no dairy. I used 72% dark ghana chopped up in the mixture and a little 62% dark almond chopped up and sprinkled on the top before baking in place of the chopped walnuts in the original recipe (they are the one nut I'm not so fond of). Teff flour is not the easiest flour to come across and comes with a hefty price tag, but a little does go a long way. I use Bob's Red Mill teff flour that is found at selected healthfood stores here in Australia. If unavailable I'd suggest you use buckwheat flour, almond meal (ground almonds) or quinoa flour in place of the 1/4 cup of teff flour. The end results will be different, but still just as lovely I imagine.
Makes 8

1/2 cup (60g) fine brown rice flour
1/4 cup (25g) cornflour (corn starch)
1/4 cup (35g) teff flour
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
2 tablespoons tapioca flour
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2/3 cup (130g) unrefined raw sugar

1 teaspoon chia seeds (mixed with 3 teaspoons cold water + set aside for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thick and jelly-like)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup (185ml) non-dairy milk, I used rice milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (60g) roughly chopped dark (vegan) chocolate 
extra chopped dark chocolate or nuts to sprinkle, if desired

Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line 8 standard 1/3 cup capacity muffin tins with paper cases.

In a medium-size mixing bowl, sift together the brown rice flour, cornflour (corn starch), teff flour, cocoa powder, tapioca flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sugar and stir until well blended. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. In another smaller bowl whisk together   the soaked chia seed mixture, olive oil, rice milk, cider vinegar and vanilla extract. Pour into the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Stir through chopped chocolate and divide mixture evenly between the 8 paper cases and sprinkle with extra chopped chocolate, or nuts if desired. Bake for 25 minutes or until risen and firm to the touch. If you are unsure, insert a skewer into the centre of one and if it comes out clean, your're good to go. Set aside for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Best eaten on the day of baking, or store airtight for 2-3 days.

    I'd love a copy of that book. We're moving from vegetarian to vegan at the moment so some new ideas would be welcome. The few recipes you've mentioned sound like ones we would make use of straight away. The potato dosa and enchiladas would be first!

    I also use ground flaxseed as an egg replacer – it works really well in all the recipes I've tried so far.

    Wow, that sounds like one great cookbook! I've been meaning to get my hands on some sorghum flour (and Teff flour) for a while now. The recipe is well timed as I will be seeing my good friend who is gluten-intolerant tomorrow. She doesn't bake much herself but really loves the baking I do for her from your recipes. I will try it with almond meal this time around. Thanks, as always.

    • emma
      September 20, 2012 at 6:33 am

      Sadly like all things, just because you eliminate one or two food groups it doesn't always mean it good for you or 'healthy'. I used to live with a bunch of vegans who lived off hot chips and nachos, minus the cheese :-/ It's all about making good choices when you bake I reckon (with regular, gluten-free and/or vegan baking), by using natural ingredients, whole grains, good fats, unrefined sugars or natural sweeteners.

      It depends where you are from? I've only found teff flour at one health food store here in Perth, Australia. It's not the most available of flours down these ways, although I think it's relatively easy to get your hands on if you live in the states…

      I use cornflour (known as cornstarch elsewhere in the world) and potato starch (known as potato flour here in Australia + NZ, confusing I know!) interchangeably but the end results do differ, a little. Potato starch gives a more moist end result.

    These certainly look delicious! I'm a cake decorator and have an aunt who is gluten intolerant. I've been wanting to experiment with gluten free baking, but now I'm especially interested in finding something before the holidays this year. Since becoming vegan earlier this year, I understand how she must feel when she can't indulge in all the delicious looking treats. Im a dessert lover, so I'll have to bring something vegan along with me for the holidays; it might as well be gluten free too! πŸ™‚

    Im not Vegan but never feel quite right about the huge consumption of cows milk in NZ, weird isn't it that we have another animal's 'milk' as a staple part of our diet??

    Lately I've been testing several variations of a brownie-type cake. This looks like another great one to try!

    These muffins look amazing! And so does the book, of course; I've been looking to make my diet a little less gluten-dependent.

    First of all, these muffins look absolutely GORGEOUS! Secondly, I would cry a thousand tears if I could get my hands on this incredible cookbook. Seriously. And I would give it to my mom for Christmas, who is trying to start eating a gluten-free diet due to health issues. πŸ™‚

    YUM! Those look amazing! I asked for this cookbook for my birthday, but alas, I did not receive it. I may just need to invest as I transition from just vegan, to gluten-free too! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi – I'd love to win a copy of this book! And I totally agree, why bother with egg-replacer and the like, when there are so many cupboard staples that produce delicious vegan baking, which more than rival conventional baking techniques!
