chocolate chip muffin recipe

i found a super yummy muffin recipe. a gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free muffin recipe. you can find it here: apple cinnamon muffin recipe.  i've made them many times and i love them. but as i said yesterday, sometimes we just need a little chocolate. so i adapted that recipe to make chocolate chip muffins. to feed my chocolate addiction.

chocolate chip muffins
adapted from paleomg's apple cinnamon muffin recipe

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 TBSP maple syrup or raw honey
3 large eggs
1/4 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup almond flour
3 TBSP coconut flour
1/4-1/2 cup mini enjoy life chocolate chips

preheat oven to 350 degrees.
mix together first four (wet) ingredients in a large bowl.
add in the next five (dry) ingredients.
stir gently.
add in chocolate chips and stir until well combined.
mixture will be quite thick.
scoop mixture into a paper-lined muffin tin.
do yourself a favor and lightly spray the paper liners with non-stick spray.
i usually end up with 8 muffins.
bake for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

let them cool for one hour before eating. that will be hard because they will look and smell very yummy. but the texture will be best after they cool a bit. and let me tell you something...for a muffin that contains zero grain this is the breadiest, doughiest, most like a normal gluten-FILLED muffin i've eaten since going g-free nearly four years ago.

have a look for yourself...

you know you want to make some!
