I bought some buckwheat flour the other day, and I’m hooked. It adds an amazing nuttiness to breads and muffins that I’ve never experienced before. Combine that with some oat flour, bananas, chocolate, and other delicious flavors, and you have a killer gluten free muffin:)
I’m a total novice in the gluten free baking world, so I’ve been searching my favorite food blogs for inspiration. This one is based off a recipe from Edible Perspective, and I’m pretty obsessed with it. These muffins are super moist, dense, and filled with chocolatley goodness. Luckily, they’re still pretty healthy for you:) Hope you enjoy!
Gluten Free Chocolate Everything Muffins
modified from Edible Perspective – ‘Triple Chocolate Quick Bread’
2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk + 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 ripe banana, mashed
3/4 cup pumpkin puree (or sweet potato puree)
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons agave (or maple syrup, honey)
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 1/3 cup gluten-free oat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
6 tablespoons buckwheat flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground flax meal
1 tablespoon instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats
3 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
2 tablespoons gluten-free oat flour
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease your muffin pan cups with coconut oil or use muffin liners.
Whisk the milk and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. (We’re making some almond milk buttermilk!)
Whisk all wet ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Add the dry ingredients on top of the wet and stir until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Combine all of the crumble ingredients in another bowl.
Pour the batter into the muffin cups and sprinkle the crumble mixture overtop. This recipe made about 18 normal sized muffins for me.
Bake for 18-22 minutes until the center is set and the top is golden and crumbly. Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Then carefully remove and transfer them to a cooling rack. Let cool another 10 minutes are so, and they are ready to eat!
