  • Cupcake tray
  • Medium Bowl


  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • ¾ cup + 3 tablespoon vegan milk of choice (or regular milk)
  • cups all-purpose flour (330 g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter (vegan or regular) (105 g)
  • cup granulated sugar (150 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup chocolate chips* (dairy free or regular)
  • Raw/coarse sugar, for sprinkling (I used turbinado sugar)


  • Make the buttermilk by pouring 1 tablespoon of white vinegar into a liquid measuring cup or a regular 1 cup measuring cup. Add in vegan milk of choice until it fills to 1 cup (you should have 1 cup total). Let sit for 5-10 minutes until the milk has curdled.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a cupcake tray with paper muffin liners.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, then set aside.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add in the sugar and oil and whisk together. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and buttermilk and whisk again.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and continue to mix together until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Fill the cupcake tins all the way to the top of the liners. Generously sprinkle with coarse sugar and top with more chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425°F. After 5 minutes, leave the muffins in the oven and lower the oven temperature to 350°F. Bake for an additional 10-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the muffins comes out clean.


CHOCOLATE CHIPS: I use semisweet dairy free chocolate chips, but you can use milk chocolate chips if you prefer. Mini chocolate chips are also really good in these muffins!
