I love these easy and delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins that are low in fat and so will you!
As you know, I love to cook and bake I’ve been scouring the Internet for recipes I could make that would still be okay for my new gluten free/dairy free lifestyle. Then I remembered that many years ago, a friend gave me printouts of recipes that she loved so I started to dig through them until I found one that I had to make. The problem for me was that I needed to transform it into a gluten free and dairy free recipe and hope it still worked.
Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins
Well, it does and these chocolate muffins are to-die-for. It was hard to eat just one, but I gathered up all my willpower and stuck to my healthy eating plan.
So, make up a batch of these muffins… eat one for breakfast or dessert and then freeze the rest for another day. A little chocolate muffin is always a good thing and the best part is that I’m able to enjoy it without worrying that I’m going to break my diet.
I love baked goods for breakfast, like my gluten free Banana Walnut Scones…they are to-die-for! You have to give them a try….especially if you’re a sweet breakfast kind of person!
