Process & Tips

This easy muffin recipe couldn’t be simpler to make!

I love that all the ingredients can be mixed together in one bowl, keeping clean up (and dirty dishes) to a minimum.

You can use a cookie scoop (or a large tablespoon) to scoop the batter into a greased muffin tin, and then they’re off to bake for 18-25 minutes.

Really, the hardest part about this recipe is just waiting for them to cool for those final 5 minutes before tearing them open & taking that first bite.

Enjoy them at room temperature, or warmed up with a little melted butter on top.

Best Types of Flour for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

There are so many gluten free flour mixes and options on the market, but to keep this recipe easy and most like a bakery-style muffin, I use a 1:1 gluten free flour.

Note that if you use an all-purpose gluten free flour the results will be denser and won’t rise as much, so I definitely recommend looking for a 1:1 gluten free flour for this recipe.

How to Store & Freeze Leftover Muffins 

Keep in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for 48 hours, or store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

Past 4 days you’ll want to freeze any leftover muffins in a sealed ziptop bag or freezer friendly container for up to 2-3 months.

If you live in a high humidity environment, I recommend refrigerating your muffins after baking.

Ingredients & Substitutions

1:1 Gluten Free Flour: To keep this recipe easy and most like a bakery-style muffin, I use a 1:1 gluten free flour. Note that if you use an all-purpose gluten free flour the results will be denser and won’t rise as much, so I definitely recommend using a 1:1 gluten free flour. If you aren’t gluten free, traditional, white all-purpose flour can also be used.

Sugar: The cane sugar helps provide sweetness to these chocolate chip muffins.

Baking soda & baking powder: Together with the eggs the baking soda and baking powder help these gluten free muffins rise.

Eggs: I haven’t tested this as a vegan recipe with flax eggs or vegan egg replacer. If you try it, be sure to let us know how it turns out!

Pure maple syrup: I like the flavor of maple syrup in this recipe but you can also use honey as an alternative liquid sweetener. 

Greek yogurt: Whole, unsweetened Greek yogurt works best for this recipe. For a dairy-free version, use a plant-based Greek yogurt instead. Just be sure to use a Greek style yogurt so it doesn’t water down the batter.

Avocado oil: I used avocado oil in this recipe. You can substitute any neutral flavored oil in its place, such as melted coconut oil or canola.

Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract always pairs well with baked goods and really helps to play up the dessert-like flavors in this muffin.

Kosher salt: Look for kosher salt with the regular iodized salt at the grocery store (it has a subtler flavor). Use less iodized salt if that’s what you have on hand.

Milk: Whole milk richness, but a rich and creamy plant based milk such as cashew milk will also work.

Tip: Make these gluten free dairy free chocolate chip muffins by swapping plant-based Greek yogurt and milk for the traditional called for in this recipe.
