Aquafaba Chocolate Muffins



Not that I would have something against eggs but I just had that 'I need a change' moment. So how about making chocolate muffins without eggs? Enter aquafaba. Under this fancy name hides the viscous water in which legume seeds such as chickpeas have been cooked. Due to its ability to mimic functional properties of egg whites in cooking, aquafaba can be used as a direct replacement for them and is often used in vegan cooking or when there is a need to replace eggs due to intolerance or allergy.
