The most perfect Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins to ever exist! Dense, rich, chocolate filled muffins are made gluten free with oat flour and coconut flour.
Let me introduce to you the best gluten free chocolate muffins.
I don’t use those words lightly, and one bite of a muffin and you will understand why!
These muffins are insanely chocolatey, soft and light (not dense or dry), and so satisfying thanks to greek yogurt!
Each rich, chocolatey muffin contains 5g of protein.
How to make gluten free chocolate muffins
Step 1: Mix together the wet ingredients first: yogurt, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil.
Tip: allow the coconut oil to cool slightly before adding to the other ingredients. If the air is too cold and you add the oil in hot, it may turn back to solid form.
What Can I use Instead of Maple Syrup?
You can substitute another liquid sweetener, such as honey or agave.
Step 2: Whisk together dry ingredients: oat flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a separate bowl.
Many gluten free flour blends can have varying results.
Oat flour and coconut flour are both easy to find, and affordable.
How to make your own oat flour
Can’t find oat flour? No problem!
Simply buy gluten free rolled oats, pop them in the blender, and blend until they turn into flour.
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and use a rubber spatula to stir until just combined.
Step 4: Fold in the chocolate chips, then fill the muffin liners with the batter
Step 5: bake your gluten free chocolate muffins for 15-18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Why we love these gluten free chocolate muffins
Texture is everything with gluten free recipes, and this is the best texture I have ever been able to create!
These taste like a cross between the most moist and flavorful chocolate cake and your favorite brownie.
They don’t fall apart, and aren’t too sweet (I love using Enjoy Life chocolate chips for this recipe).
I used mini chocolate chips for a better distribution of melted chocolate on the inside, ensuring that every delicious bite is chocolate packed!
I love grabbing one of these for a healthier dessert or mid day snack!
Tips for muffins that do not stick
I recommend using parchment paper muffin liners anytime you make muffins.
Absolutely nothing will stick to parchment paper, so the muffins just come right off!
If you do not have these, spray your regular muffin liners with cooking spray before adding the batter.
If you are prone to reaching for sugary cereal to curb a morning sweet tooth, these would be the perfect breakfast for you!
Each muffin is less than 200 calories and has a whopping 5 grams of protein in it.
Two chocolate muffins for breakfast? Yes,please!
