double chocolate fudge muffin for one {vegan}


"All the SIIIIIngle ladies! All the single ladies. All the SIIIIngle ladies! All the single ladies. Now put your hands uuuUUUP!" *raising my hand up high*

I was totally singing this song in my head when I was making this muffin. I sing it with pride, ya know? Single people rock! Plus, they get one gigantic muffin all to themselves so... All the more reason to forget boys, I say. 

Although I don't live on my own, I might as well as far as the whole food situation goes. Sure, my family has a nibble of this and a nibble of that, but umm. I don't need a whole jar of granola, a batch of peanut butter cups, a batch of cookies, and a pan of brownies all to myself. {… but do I?}

Yes, that sounds wonderful, but it doesn't really agree with my resolution to only eat when I'm hungry and get better at listening to my body. I'll do good the rest of the day, but shove a giant muffin in my face and goodBYEEEEE resolution, hello chocolate lerrrrv. 


I made this only a few hours after lunch {honestly, sometimes I make things for the sole purpose making things. And photographing things.}, and told myself I wouldn't eat the whole muffin and would eat it for breakfast the next morning. 

Or for dinner after the gym cuz leg presses suck. 

Ten minutes later, that muffin was nowhere to be seen and I had chocolate all over my face somehow… I dunno. Crazy chocolate, how'd you manage to get there??


I've really been loving experimenting with vegan baking {and vegan EATING in general. It's doable.} I've had some really good success when it comes to muffins/cakes/cookies, but BROWNIES. Oh my lawwwwd you guys. I tried making brownies the other day and… whoa. I mean.. They were okay but definitely not your classic brownie. No sireeeeeee. 

One of the many plus sides of vegan baking though? You can lick the bowl! Not that eggs usually stops me from doing so, but I don't have to worry about my mom yelling at me that I'll get sick. Uhh mom, I think I've built up an immunity by now. 

Anyhow. This muffin was honestly one of the best muffins I've ever had. Ever. And I have had a LOT of muffins in my day, mmkay? Not to mention it's totally vegan and there's no processed sugar or flour crap in there. You'd never have thunked it! It totally tastes full on fat and sugar loaded! It's so fluffy and cakey, I don't even want to call it a muffin. It's more like a cupcake, but we're gonna call it a muffin because that makes it more socially acceptable to eat for breakfast. Derrrr. 

"AAAAAAll the single ladies! All the single ladies…"
