Vegan cocoa muffins with kiwi and pistachio

Vegan cocoa muffins with kiwi and pistachio are one of my new combo I suggest you to try.

The end of summer opens the season of the oven and chocolate cakes that, for my personal taste, are the favorite. September is the season of Sicilian pistachios, fruit that goes perfectly with cocoa. Sicilian kiwis are a Sicilian specialty that I have included in this recipe and which give a paticular sweetness. Bananas replace eggs and make these vegan cocoa muffins with kiwi and pistachio ideal for everyone. If you do not like bananas, you can replace them with a substitute for eggs or crushed apples.

50 g (2 oz) buckwheat flour, sifted

150 g (5 oz) wholewheat fliur, sifted

  1. In a bowl, mix the flours with baking powder and cocoa. In another bowl, mix the bananas with the oil, the milk and the pinch of salt.
