Vegan & Gluten-free Chickpea Cherry Muffins

by Lucia

If you follow me for some time, you know that I am creating sweet and savoury dishes from legumes. Chickpea flour is my most favourite ingredient also for desserts. It adds super flavour and other benefits too. Its much more healthier alternative, its naturally gluten-free and rich of protein and nutrients your body needs.

These sweet muffins are vegan, gluten-free and made from chickpea flour. They are light, delicious, fluffy and stays soft still during the second day. Because of the chickpea flour, they can be a super-power breakfast or a snack during the day. Muffins are also so practical to take-away with you to the office or give them to your kids to school.

Easy, mess-free, work-free and super taste-full.

The preparation of these muffins is quite easy too. You just mix all ingredients together and pour it into a baking bowls. That’s it!
