Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease your muffin tins or add muffin liners. Whisk the milk, oil, yoghurt and vinegar together in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes (the coconut oil may solidify but don't worry).
  2. In another bowl sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder together before adding the salt, honey and vanilla. Combine well.
  3. Gently mix the two bowls of mixtures together until combined then spoon evenly between 10 muffin tray holes. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. Once the muffins have cooled melt dark chocolate in the microwave with a dash of water in 10 second increments until melted. Mix well and lightly ice the top of each muffin using the back of a teaspoon.
  5. Best kept in an airtight container in the fridge or frozen and heat in the microwave before eating.
