Vegan double chocolate muffins

Today we have a guest post from Milly the Vegan.  There are 2 reasons why this is a guest post.  (1) because I didn't make these muffins and (2) because [shock!] they aren't bread.  But I let them on the site because they are both chocolatey and delicious which covers two of the major food groups.
Milly tells me that the recipe comes from the imaginatively titled "Vegan Cake Book" available from Animal Aid.  For £2.99 you get a slim volume containing just 16 recipes.  But when they all taste as good as this, you realise that's a bit of a bargain.
There's (obviously) no eggs to raise the muffins but self raising flour and baking powder combined with a ridiculous amount of chocolate guarantees that they will be light and scrummy.
"I changed the recipe just a little," says Milly, "and used orange juice as my secret weapon to replace some of the water.  This is a tip I got from Rose Elliott - the acidity in the orange juice is just enough to react with the raising agents and give  perfect rise."
I say......"Yum!".
