Vegan Cranberry Mocha Muffins

This is one of my favourites..I love the heavenly combination of dark chocolate and rich aromatic coffee in a muffin. Each bite of this muffin is loaded with flavour, and the best thing is it is vegan, and doesn't have even a drop of oil !

Ingredients :

  • Cake flour            1 Cup ( You can use either whole wheat flour, or all purpose flour; I used cornflour and All purpose flour in 1:4 ratio)
  • Powdered sugar   1 cup
  • Baking powder    1 tsp
  • Cocoa powder     1/4 cup 
  • Coffee powder     2 tbsps
  • Water                   1 cup
  • Dried Cranberries (or any other berry) 
  • Muffin liners       9
Method :
  • In a bowl, mix together the cake flour, powdered sugar, baking powder and cocoa powder. Sift once or twice and set aside.
  • Boil water and add the coffee powder to it. Let it brew for a while.
  • Drain and pour the hot espresso over the dry ingredients.
  • Toss in the dried cranberries and fold the batter to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • Preheat the oven for 10 minutes
  • Pour the batter into muffin liners and bake for 15-20 minutes at 175 degrees.
  • Check if done by inserting a toothpick.
  • Can be frosted with cashew or peanut butter.

    Lovely! I love cranberries but I have never tried making anything using them.. I usually buy KDD harvest’s cranberry juice which I absolutely love.. I am definitely making this… any idea where I can buy dry cranberries?

    Hi Diksha! Thanks :)
    I have seen dried cranberry packets at M.K. Retail stores in Cmh road, Bangalore. You may also find them in all those world food shops like Natures Basket.
