  • 1 ½ cups wheat bran (87g)
  • 1 cup plain oat milk, or your favorite plain plant-based milk (~240ml)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (15ml)
  • ½ cup brown sugar (106g)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (30ml)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce (62g)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (15g)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (2.5ml)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (113g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (4g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (4g)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (2g)
  • ½ cup semi-sweet non-dairy chocolate chips (80g)


    1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large mixing bowl, combine together the wheat bran, oat milk and apple cider vinegar. Let that sit for about 5 minutes or so. Then, add the brown sugar, maple syrup, apple sauce, ground flaxseed and vanilla extract.

    2. Once the oven is preheated, add the whole-wheat flour, baking soda and powder, salt and chocolate chips to the large mixing bowl with the wet ingredients in it. Fold this together well until cohesive and no dry ingredients remain. Spoon the dough into lightly greased muffin tin wells (greased with cooking spray or a little bit of vegan butter) until it fills about ¾ of the way full. This'll fill anywhere from 10 – 12 of the wells. Bake for 16 – 19 minutes, until the tops are firm to touch and spring back a little when poked with a finger.
