Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here’s one last chocolate treat for Valentine’s Day — chocolate chip muffins. I like to eat them warm out of the oven while the chocolate chips are still gooey. These muffins are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I even have them for dessert sometimes. They are quick and easy to make, and they’re gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free.

Bake some now, and freeze some for the next time you need a chocolate treat. Then just put them in a cold oven and set it to low to thaw and reheat. There’s nothing like warm chocolate chip muffins.

    I am new to baking this way. Is it possible to substitute coconut flour or something like that instead of almond? I can’t send them to school if they contain nuts.

      Tasha, almond flour and coconut flour are very different and you can’t substitute them. I would try starting with a recipe that uses coconut flour, like this banana blackberry muffin recipe, and substitute chocolate chips for the blackberries. I haven’t tested it, but I think you’ll have better luck doing it this way. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
