Happy Anniversary!

No no no its not mine (although ours is coming up very soon!), but its one of my bff's first year anniversary with her sweet hubby tomorrow and I couldn't be happier for them and I just had to bake them a little treat to celebrate! I was trying to find a recipe where I had everything on hand and I came across these Chocolate Walnut muffins, they are even vegan for those of who are following a vegan lifestyle.

Vegan Chocolate Walnut Muffins

1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup maple syrup
¾ cup milk (I used 1%)
½ tsp vanilla added
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 8 muffin cups in a baking tin.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, milk and vegetable oil. Pour wet ingredients into flour mixture and stir until smooth, adding walnuts at the last minute. Do not over mix, but try not to have any pockets of dry ingredients left in the batter. Spoon into prepared muffin tins, filling each 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the top springs back when lightly pressed.
Let cool slightly before serving. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, before storing well wrapped or in an airtight container.
Makes 8 muffins

Enjoy! And happy one anniversary Katie & Paul!
