This is a recipe I've posted before but is detox friendly and delicious- chocolate chip muffins. This is another recipe where, after making a few substitutions, is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. A big take home message about all these recipes is that, just because you are avoiding gluten/dairy/sugar, doesn't mean you have to give up your favourite recipes or foods, by finding and understanding how to make simple substitutions you can adjust your recipes to give you 'healthier' versions! I also like to add ground flaxseeds, hemp hearts and chia seeds to anything I can!
Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 cup oat flour (you can use any gluten free flour you'd like, I just find oat an easy sub)
3/4 cup rolled oats (oat bran is what's called for, but I was out)
1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 cup hemp hearts
1/3 cup sweetener- honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, unsweetened apple sauce etc.
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon (I usually add more than this)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400F. Mix dry ingredients together (if using dry sweetener like coconut sugar mix this in here). Mix wet ingredients together (if using wet sweetener like honey or maple syrup mix in here). Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stir just until moistened, then mix in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups and bake for 16-20 min. Enjoy!
And these, like all my recipes, are very toddler approved!
