Zucchini bread was yesterday! – Try these healthy cauliflower chocolate muffins which do not only contain a hidden veggie but are also vegan and gluten-free.
If you guys know me, then you know how I like to combine a treat with health benefits. Since you guys went crazy about my Sauerkraut Chocolate cake, I thought I can continue including healthy veggies in sweets.
These healthy cauliflower chocolate muffins are the perfect combination of nutrients and flavor. You can either make them plain or add jam in the center and whipped soy cream on top.
I am looking forward to seeing your healthy Cauliflower Chocolate Muffins on Instagram (Tag me @vanillacrunnch ) or use my hashtag #bakingwithvanillacrunnch

Hi this looks delicious. Any suggestions for subbing rice flour? I cannot have any grains (rice, buckwheat, and etc is out of question). Will sweet potato flour work?
Yes should work 🙂
