Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins


Most kids love muffins and it's pretty easy to make yummy gluten free muffins that are also free of dairy, soy, nuts and eggs. My son is really fussy with veggies so I need to be a bit creative sometimes and sneak them in where I can.


I've created this new chocolate chip muffin recipe that includes some grated zucchini that's totally undetectable. I also used some Nutra Organics C Berry Blast for a bit of extra goodness or you could also use the Nutra Organics Berry Choc Chunk Powder. Either would be a great option to boost up the nutrients!

Gluten Free Muffins: Chocolate with Choc Chips

Gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, soy free, nut free, can be egg free

Makes approximately 22 large muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup (140g) sorghum flour 
½ cup (45g) desiccated coconut
½ cup (90g) potato starch
½ cup (55g) cacao powder
1 cup (155g) rapadura or coconut sugar (or sugar)
1 tspxanthan gum (orguar gum) - you can leave this out if preferred but your muffins will be more crumbly
2 tspsgluten free baking powder
1 tsp bi-carb soda
2 tbsps chia seeds (or flax seeds or 1 tbsp of each)
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsps Nutra Organics C Berry Blast (or Nutra Organics Berry Choc Chunk) - optional
3 tbsp (45g) melted 
coconut oil
¾ cup (185mls) of dairy free milk
2 eggs (or 1 tub of apple puree)
2 tsps vanilla extract
150g zucchini, peeled and grated
1 cup dairy free choc chips (I used Plamil Organic Rich Chocolate Chips)

Method:

  • Heat oven to 180°C
  • Line large cupcake pans with baking papers
  • Put all dry ingredients into a food processor or Thermomix and grind until desiccated coconut and seeds are fine like flour (30 secs, speed 9 in Thermomix)
  • Add melted coconut oil, milk, eggs (or apple puree), vanilla extract and grated zucchini and mix until just combined (10 secs, speed 5 in Thermomix, scrape down and repeat if necessary for 5 secs) 
  • Stir in choc chips by hand
  • Pop evenly into baking pans (I use an old fashioned ice cream scoop to get even sized muffins)
  • Put in oven to bake for approximately 20 minutes
  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack after 5 minutes to cool

You can pop left over muffins in the freezer for kids lunchboxes too!

These look like a great idea but there’s a bucket load of sugar in there. Would it work if I halved the sugar and also halved the cacao?
