Vegan cocoa kiwi muffins are one of my new combo I suggest you to try.
Sicilian kiwis are a specialty that make special this recipe. Kiwis are an excellent source of vitamins C and E. Two kiwis contain on average twice as much Vitamin C as an orange. Vitamin C strengthens the immune system, slows down the aging process, absorbs iron and helps bone health.
Vitamin E contains antioxidants useful for reducing cholesterol and increasing immune defenses. Kiwi is an autumn fruit and is available until December. Following the seasons, as far as fruits and vegetables are concerned, is the best choice for your health.
Bananas replace eggs and make these vegan cocoa kiwi muffins ideal for everyone. If you do not like bananas, you can replace them with a egg replacer or crushed apples.
