I am really trying to bake up some more gluten free goods for you guys, I get so many requests for more gluten free or paleo treats. I have made these muffins a few times and they are one of my favorite gluten free recipe son the blog! I just recently started adding chocolate chips to the mix and it took them to a whole new level!
Other recipes to try:
Gluten free goods can sometimes be overly dense and dry, these muffins are the complete opposite! They are light and fluffy with a slight crisp to the outside from the almond flour. I almost like them better than the regular version of these muffins. They have lots of good texture and adding walnuts to the tops makes them look even more appetizing.
You can easily substitute GF all purpose flour for the almond flour but I suggest you use 1.5 cups instead of 2 cups.
This recipe calls for gluten free oats. I decided to add some oats into these muffins to get some more texture and fiber into them. I also added dark chocolate chips but you can certainly add any chips you like best! Milk chocolate chips are another great option.
This recipe also calls for coconut sugar. You can use regular white sugar if you'd prefer, they may have a little sweeter taste if you opt to go in that direction.
If you make these, be sure to post about it and tag me on Instagram @sailor_bailey and use #SailorBailey so I can see your creations.

If you do not have any than spray the muffin tin or rub coconut oil on the cups to prevent sticking - Muffin cups are highly recommended to hold the muffins in place.
