Bring on Fall With Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Hey friends! I hope you're all enjoying the long weekend with your family and friends. I headed over to my sister's to help her get the baby's room set up. Today I'm sharing a fabulous gluten free recipe with all of you. As you know, I recently found out that I have a gluten sensitivity so I've had to learn a whole new way of eating. I've already shared GF Blueberry Muffins  and GF Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake which was a huge hit at my office.

Today's GF recipe is for Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins in honor of my favorite season just around the corner - fall! I absolutely love this time of year - the changing leaves, beautiful colors, and all of the wonderful fall flavors and scents. I pretty much love pumpkin anything so when I found this recipe I just had to try it! If you've never tried combining chocolate and pumpkin you MUST! The two of them together is a match made in heaven.

GF Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins (source)

2 cups white rice flour 
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp clove
1/4 tsp allspice
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp GF vanilla 
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Optional: Sprinkle top with raw sugar

Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a muffin pan by either greasing with shortening or lining with liners.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together. Make a well in the center and add your eggs, vanilla, pumpkin, and canola oil. Gently fold ingredients together. When combined, spoon into your pan. If desired you can sprinkle top with raw sugar and more chocolate chips. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

These are really tasty and only get better with time. All the flavors combine really well and come out stronger a day or two after baking.

I'm finding that living gluten free really isn't all that hard and I feel so much better! I encourage you, if you're having any health issues and nothing is working - medicines, therapy, doctor visits - PLEASE look at what you're eating and see if there's something you can change. It is working so well for me and so many others!!

Until next time, happy reading and more importantly, happy cupcake-ing!
