These are one of my favorite treats! I adapted this recipe from a Bethany Frankel recipe which was originally low-gluten and vegan anyway.  I have made these muffins for several years now and they are still one of my favorites.

These really can’t be called cupcakes I suppose, but they still make a delicious dessert! The pumpkin makes these muffins moist and fudgy without too much fat from adding additional oil. The next time you have chocolate cravings, give these Gluten Free Double Chocolate Muffins a try!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350˚ F and line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and oil until combined.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together rice flour, chia meal, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. Add in the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  • Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups (the muffin cups will be full). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. These taste better once they have completely cooled. Enjoy!

Notes

*You can lighten up these fudgy muffins even healthier by replacing some of the sugar with baking Stevia, and using less chocolate chips.

    • Hi Jeanette! I am not sure how well almond flour will work in this recipe. If you want to use almond flour, I would suggest replacing 3 tablespoons of liquid with an egg to help with binding the almond flour. If you try this, let me know how it turns out!
