Gluten Free Applesauce Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love muffins. Especially when they contain chocolate chips. And when they're incredibly moist.

I had a bunch of applesauce in the fridge so I decided why not try my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins with applesauce in them in place of the pumpkin? I tried it, and as you can see below, they turned out great.

Moist, delicious, and chocolate-chip-y.

Gluten Free Applesauce Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup White or Brown Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 6 Tablespoons Water, Hot
  • 2 Tablespoons Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 1/2 Cup Applesauce
  • 1/4 Cup Oil
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips

  1. Heat the water for about thirty seconds and then add the flaxseed meal to it and set it aside for ten minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a medium size bowl measure the sugar, rice flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon (if using), and whisk together.
  4. Add the flax-egg, applesauce and oil to the dry ingredients, and fold in until just combined.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips and then scoop into wrapper lined muffin tins.
