Get ready for a treat with these delicious Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins!
If you enjoyed these Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins, then you will love this chocolate chip twist on the same base gluten-free muffin recipe.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins use a simple base recipe with your favorite variety of chocolate chips mixed right in.
How do you make these gluten-free?
Just as I mentioned with the blueberry muffins these chocolate chip muffins just need one simple swap of flour to make them gluten-free. In order for these to be made gluten-free, use a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour such as Better Batter.
Outside of this swap, as always be sure the remaining ingredients you use such as the chocolate chips are gluten-free too. All the remaining ingredients are naturally gluten-free, but it’s always wise to check the labels to avoid any cross-contamination.
Tips for Making Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins:
When making these muffins, be sure to fold in the chocolate chips. This will help them remain whole instead of being mixed to shreds with the mixer.
Any variety of chocolate chips can be used to make these, we prefer semi-sweet, but again it’s totally up to you and your preference.
Once you make the muffins, they can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week after baking. They can be stored at room temperature, no need to refrigerate.
If you want to freeze these, you can wrap them in foil and then place them in a freezer-safe storage bag. When ready to eat, just let them defrost at room temperature or remove from foil and heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
We find this is a great way to make breakfast or snacks ahead and just warm it up on the go!
It’s time to enjoy this warm treat!

I’m always on the lookout for good gluten free recipes. Thanks for sharing on Love Your Creativity.
The batter was line play dough. I had to throw it away. I bake a lot and these were not it.
Mommy Hates Cooking says
Sorry, you had trouble with these. That’s not been my experience, but this recipe does have to be done very carefully and the batter has to be mixed lightly to avoid over mixing. Curious if you used a stand mixer? Sometimes those can easily over mix it.
I too had a playdoh- like consistency. I am a very experienced baker, measured everything carefully and mixed by hand. It was so thick I threw the batter away and used another recipe.
Mommy Hates Cooking says
Did you make them gluten-free or regular? If gluten-free, what flour did you use? The consistency will come out like a bread dough batter, they will not pour in like cake if that makes sense.
I’m unsure what this recipe is for, definitely not muffins.
Gordon Ramsay would of asked what animal made this and what planet/year was this made.

These turned out amazing! I added a scoop of protein for my kiddos so I ended up adding a bit more milk at the end. But otherwise, followed the recipe exactly and they loved it!
These are the absolute best muffins! We make them all the time. Turn out perfect every single time. I’m so confused by the negative comments about the dough because I’ve never had a bad experience. These muffins taste like chocolate chip cookies!!! Every single time I make them, everyone goes crazy for them! So so so good! I’d say just make sure you follow her recipe exactly. I use coconut milk and coconut sugar and only do 1/2 cup of the coconut sugar. Still comes out perfect!
First time making and everyone loved them . The dough is super thick , but just go with it ! They bake out perfectly . Super jimmy !
People and there negative comments suck !

I should have read the comments before I wasted the gluten free flour and all the other ingredients on these “muffins”. It is more like a scone consistency than a muffin; very tough, hard, heavy. I think this is the first negative comment I’ve ever left online in my life – but anyone looking to make muffins, you really, REALLY should try a different recipe. Sadly, all these “muffins” went in the trash.
