These Vegan Chocolate Muffins Will Have you Baking for More.

Unfortunately, those that have a dairy intolerance or follow a plant-based diet are limited in what they can eat and indulge in, especially classic chocolate desserts as they usually include dairy products. There is a stigma that these dietary limits have to include boring and bland meals in order to stay within the green zone. We are here to tell you that a plant-based diet does not have to be boring! DFDU has a great range of products including a Cream Cheese Style that is a delicious alternative to classic cream cheese.
