Units Scale


  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Grease or line 9 muffin cups. 
  • Wash and then slice eggplant into 1 inch chunks. Place on a glass bowl, cover with another plate and microwave for 3-4 minutes on high until soft. 
  • While the eggplant is still hot, add it into a blender or food processor along with the flax egg, almond butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, half of the chocolate (45g), balsamic vinegar and vanilla. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  • Pour the blended mixture into a large mixing bowl. Then add in the oat flour, oats, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined. Depending on how moist your eggplant is, you may need to add 1-3 tbsp extra of almond or oat flour. The batter should be not spoonable, not too thick but also not runny like pancake batter (see video for texture). You could also just add the dry ingredients into the blender except for the rolled oats and blend or mix it in there. Then stir in the rolled oats and remaining chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the batter all the way to the top of the muffin liner (about 92-95g each). Bake for 5 minutes and then reduce the temperature back down to 350 F. Bake for another 18-20 minutes. 18 minutes for fudgy muffins and 20 minutes for cake-y muffins. 
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 2-3 minutes. Transfer them onto a wire rack and let them cool further. Enjoy!
