Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

I’m not that much of a baker. Cooking and baking to me is like apples and oranges. Two different worlds. But…

Sometimes I get this serious urge to bake. I mean, am I the only one? I could be sitting on the couch, watch T…… oh never mind. I know EXACTLY….. why I get those urges. (high five) Seriously though there are some days that I just get into the mood and I feel I have to whip out that flour and start baking. I love greasing the pan (some people actually hate that part. I don’t know why.) I love using my favorite baking equipment like my whisk and bowl, etc. My mom has this awesome “hand me down” aluminum bowl that I’m waiting for her to forget at my house so I can claim as my own but she’s yet to leave it here. So. I have to keep waiting.

When Bob’s Red Mill sent me some Gluten Free Whole Grain Oat Flour, I needed to make something good. I remember seeing cocoa powder in the pantry yesterday so I felt the urge to use it of course. Plus, I like, love, chocolate. I mean, seriously. Insert these awesome Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins. Super fluffy and moist (I surprised myself with this recipe) I posted the whole cooking/baking process on my “Instagram Story” so check me out on Instagram. (obviously after 24hrs it deletes, so, yeah) Enjoy.
