Healthier Gluten Free Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffins

Healthier Gluten Free Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffins

I present you with the my favorite Healthier Gluten Free Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe!!  These muffins are seriously good.   Being gluten, dairy, soy, corn and peanut free makes them healthier than the traditional Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffin and they’re client tested; Husband approved! 🙂

 

I used to cook for an aerialist with Cirque du Soleil in my personal chef business.  She hired me because it was important for her to get enough good quality food in each day since she was constantly doing such intense physical exercise.  She even had a 2-story pole installed in her condo so she could practice at home!

These muffins were her ALL-TIME favorite snack, and she’d request them on a weekly basis.  They were perfect for her since they’re made with such good quality ingredients and they totally satisfied her sweet tooth.

Freshly made these muffins are slightly crisp on the outside with a moist and fluffy center.  They’re also bursting with chocolate no matter where you bite.  So to sum them up:  easy to prepare, satisfying and DELICIOUS!

Let’s get baking!!!
