Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

When I was younger my mom was not a big baker at all, so to be honest I’m not sure how I ended up here … a food blogger who mainly bakes! But I will say, the one treat that my mom would make my sisters and I was mini chocolate chip muffins. They were from the box, but sometimes from the box is the most delicious and I can definitely say that those little muffins hold a special place in my heart. They are also the inspiration behind these Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins.

I of course had to put my little health spin on the mini muffins. No matter what I’m cooking or baking, I like to make it a little healthier. For these that meant gluten free! Despite being gluten free they have the perfect fluffy texture. I love how you can just pop one (or five) of these mini chocolate chip muffins into your mouth and they basically melt! Which is probably why I have none left at this point!

What you need for these Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins?

As I said these are completely gluten free! They are made with my favorite gluten free flour combination, oat flour and almond flour. Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins also have a few other healthy swaps that make these a lighter option than the boxed muffins my mom used to make! But trust me they are just as easy to whip up.

  • Butter: I have been using butter in more of my recipes because it just adds an unbeatable flavor to treats in my opinion. I also do not think there is any reason to be scared to use butter!
  • Applesauce: Although I love to bake with butter butter, I also love to use applesauce in place of extra butter or extra oil. It is a healthy swap that adds moisture and natural sweetness, without more fat.
  • Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar is my absolute favorite refined sugar free sweetener to use! It creates an excellent taste and texture in treats.
  • Oat Flour: I love oat flour so much! I think it creates the most light and fluffy texture. I make my own my blending up oats until a fine flour forms but you can also buy at the store! Just make sure you use certified gluten free oats or oat flour if you have an allergy.
  • Almond Flour: Another favorite flour of mine! I am so into the combination of oat flour and almond flour these days, it makes total melt in your mouth treats. I buy my almond flour in bulk from Costco or BJs.
  • Chocolate Chips: I love to use dairy free chocolate chips, but use whatever chocolate chips you enjoy or have on hand.
  • Egg: For binding and moisture!
  • Vanilla Extract & Salt for some flavor and Baking Soda for that perfect fluff I have been talking about.

How to make these Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins!

  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the softened butter, applesauce, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add in the almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, and salt. Combine evenly.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Grease or line a mini muffin tin. Add about 1 tbsp of the batter to each muffin. Mine made 16 muffins!
  6. Top with more chocolate chips. (Optional but highly recommended!)
  7. Bake for 13 minutes.
  8. Let cool before removing from the tin and enjoy!
