My guide to glutenfree chocolate muffins

gluten-free muffins, chocolate muffins, gluten-free baking

Baking gluten-free muffins, cakes, buns etc. can be tricky, since gluten is what creates the “bonds” in cakes the gluten-free versions tend to become dry and fall apart easily. After some experimenting I’ve finally found a recipe which makes delicious and juicy gluten-free muffins with a rich chocolate flavor.

The best thing about these muffins is that they’re easy to bake and can be frozen for those unexpected “fikas”. I try to always keep a couple of cookies, muffins, or something  else I like, in the freezer. That way I can just put one in my bag if I’m headed to an event where there might not be gluten-free snacks. Like the snicker’s commercial, I get “hangry” so it’s nice to keep somehing edible in my bag for an unexpected sugar-drop!

Here’s the recipe!
