This Gluten Free Muffin Recipe is easy to follow and makes deliciously rich gluten free chocolate muffins.
We used 72% dark chocolate which we love and which gives a particularly rich flavour. If you prefer something smoother then milk chocolate is a great choice.
Muffins are one of the easiest cake recipes to make since all you need to do is mix the wet ingredients into the dry, pop the mixture into cases and cook.
If you want to offer a real gluten free treat to family and friends then why not make them for your gluten free breakfast.
This gluten free muffin recipe freezes well. Freeze on the day of baking and defrost your muffins individually or in batches to enjoy as and when you like.
