  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour I like Pillsbury gluten-free. Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different baking results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum ,leave out if your flour already has it
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs , room temprature
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted dairy-free use Smart Balance butter
  • 1 cup milk dairy-free use almond, cashew or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free mini chocolate chips for dairy-free I like Enjoy Life Foods

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Use baking cup liners or gluten-free cooking spray for the muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl add the all-purpose gluten-free flour, granulated sugar, gluten-free baking powder, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it), and cocoa powder and whisk together to combine the ingredients.
  3. Add the two eggs, pure vanilla extract melted butter and milk to the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

  4. Scoop the batter into baking cups lined/cooking sprayed muffin tin. I like to use a greased ice cream scoop. I also sprinkle more chocolate chips on top of the batter.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Please watch the muffins because all ovens are different. Allow the muffins to completely cool.
