Lil Runner | Vegan Chocolate Chip olive oil muffins

Yum yum! My kids have been asking for muffins in the morning, and I need something quick before school often. Cereal is out of style I guess? Or the ones I buy aren’t really that fun, so they aren’t into them.

These muffins are adapted from Peas and Thank You cookbook – her blueberry streusel muffins. I don’t know what happened to Mama Pea or her blog (no more URL)??? ย but I have her cookbook from a few years ago!

CHOCOLATE CHIP (OLIVE OIL) MUFFINS (9 large or 18-20 small)

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 c coconut sugar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 to 1 1/4c non-dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c olive oil
1/2 c mini chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is dairy free) (approximately ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Combine apple cider vinegar with milk and let stand.ย Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin tin. ย Combine dry ingredients. Add olive oil to milk and vinegar, and add this mixture into the dry ingredients until combined. If it seems dry, add extra 1/4 c non dairy milk. Fold in chocolate chips. Do not overmix. ย Bake large muffins for 25 minutes or until edges brown, or smaller muffins for 12-14 minutes. Enjoy!



  1. I made these muffins this week and they were a big hit. Thank you for posting them! I forgot about the vanilla and used less sugar. So, I was afraid they might get rejected.

    I have Mama Pea’s cookbook too and have enjoyed most of her recipes that I’ve tried. I never really followed her blog, but I think I read elsewhere that she was adopting a baby (?) and shut it down.
