Ingredients for 6–8 pieces


Preparation time: 30 minutes

You need: muffin tin


  • 2 YOGI TEA® Soul Balm teabags
  • 300 ml water
  • 100 g vegan chocolate (min. 70% cocoa) + 6–8 additional pieces of chocolate
  • 45 ml rapeseed oil
  • 100 g date sugar (or 80 g raw cane sugar)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100 g spelt flour (type 630)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Oil for greasing tin





1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (convection oven) and grease the muffin tin. Pour 300 ml of boiling water over the tea and leave to infuse for 10 minutes. Melt 100 g of chocolate in a bain-marie.


2. In a bowl, mix the tea with the rapeseed oil and the melted chocolate. Add the date sugar and cocoa powder and stir until smooth.


3. In a second bowl, mix the flour and baking powder, then gradually stir the flour into the batter. Mix the dough until there are no lumps.


4. Fill the muffin tins half full with batter. Place a piece of chocolate in each mould and spread the rest of the batter over the moulds. Bake the lava cakes in the preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the cakes from the muffin tin and place onto a wire rack; serve while still warm.
