Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins using Gerbs Chocolate

These Dark Chocolate Muffins are real gluten-free muffins and they use GERBS DARK CHOCOLATE MINI CHIPS and GERBS COCOA POWDER.

Muffins are tiny individual quick breads. Even though they look a lot like cupcakes, muffins aren’t nearly as sweet as their small cake cousins. They aren’t meant to be. Muffins have a more dense texture than a cupcake, not as much sugar in the batter and tend to be a touch heartier. There’s no frosting on a muffin, either. You can however, sprinkle on a healthy portion of Gerbs Dark Chocolate before baking. Don’t skip that step!

In this recipe, you can use your favorite gluten-free flour. This recipe is free from gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts and corn.

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF GLUTEN FREE DARK CHOCOLATE

  • Research shows dark chocolate contains antioxidant compounds called flavonols. In addition to protecting our cells from damage, flavonols also have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Findings also reveal the decadent dark treat reduces “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and improves “good” (HDL) cholesterol. Melting dark chocolate does not destroy its health benefits.
  • In terms of weight loss, dark chocolate slows digestion to keep us feeling full longer. It also revs up our metabolism for a more effective calorie burn!

    Found I can sub out the eggs with flax eggs and use a 1 cup oat flour (processed the rolled oats in blender) with 1/4 homemade whole hemp seed meal. Deep nutty flavor, the rise is a bit off and I think it needs a bit of adjustment but more allergen friendly this way.
