HOW DO YOU TELL MUFFINS ARE DONE WITHOUT A TOOTHPICK?
If you touch the tops of the muffins and they spring back, then that means they are finished baking. You can also shake the pan to see if the muffins wiggle or remain in place.

If you over mix the muffins, then they will turn out very dense and hardly fluffy. You don't want to much air to get into the batter.

We got this recipe after one of our interviews with creative art director and LA-based prop stylist, Wilmarose Orlanes. Orlanes bakes a lot of vegan recipes in her home and loves to use Tejari Organic Cacao Blend in them.
"Not only do they pack our muffins, cakes, and pancakes with whole ingredient and protein, but Tejari blends are so tasty and just add another layer of flavor to our food. I took our favorite vegan chocolate cake recipe and recreated it to include Tejari Organic Cacao Blend."
