Gluten free chocolate chip muffins are the perfect treat for busy mornings or afternoon snacks. They’re simple and delicious and easy to make, too!
Earlier this year, my family and I did a Whole30, which is 30-days without grains, dairy, legumes, sugar, and other things. One of the reasons, we decided to give it a try was the mysterious itching and eczema that plague a couple of our children. We weren’t too strict on it with the kids, allowing them to eat things they were offered at church or at the homes of friends.
It didn’t take long to realize that gluten was the mostly likely cause of the itching and skin irritation so since the 30 days ended, our family has been avoiding gluten, and I’ve been trying to learn to bake with gluten free flours.
It’s not always easy, but I do like a challenge.
During the Whole30, we didn’t prepare baked goods or treats so when the month ended, I started looking for ways to give the kids a treat from time to time.
These muffins fit the bill!
They are not difficult to make, and the kids enjoy them. The best part is that they don’t taste gluten free. They’re just good muffins.
Other recipes I’ve tried are often a bit grainy or the texture just isn’t right in some way. The texture of these gluten free chocolate chip muffins is tender and soft.
Take a look:
