Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins {Gluten-Free, Paleo, Dairy-Free}

What better way to indulge a chocolate craving than with a healthy chocolate chip muffin? These muffins are dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo, and perfect. They make a tasty snack for kids and moms alike.

With summer here and everyone being outside all day, the last thing anyone wants to do it be inside whipping up snack after snack. This is why taking the time to have healthy snacks on hand and ready will help keep day to day life a bit simpler.

These almond flour-based, chocolate chip muffins make a tasty snack for busy days as well as a fueling snack when you are out and about.

Grab some for the road when you head out hiking or exploring and stay fueled with both a healthy option as well as an indulgent one.

Gluten-Free Muffins

These chocolate chip flours use a combination of Wildly Organic Almond Flour as well as an all-purpose gluten-free flour.

This gives the muffins light and fluffy texture while also giving them a nutrient boost thanks to the almonds.

A Burst of Healthy Chocolate

Everyone loves chocolate, right? And these chocolate chip muffins have a double dose: from chocolate chips as well as chocolate sauce.

The Wildly Organic Chocolate Syrup is made with just two ingredients: cacao powder and agave syrup and gives the muffins a healthy dose of indulgence.

Cacao powder is loaded with antioxidants, calcium, and magnesium. So, using it in its purest form (instead of it is processed counterpart cocoa powder) gives you the best bang for your buck.

The chocolate sauce is thick, indulgent, and the perfect way to top these chocolate chip muffins.

When to Use These Chocolate Muffins

These muffins are allergy-friendly and make a tasty snack, though I have definitely used them as a dessert!

Because of the chocolate topping, they are best eaten fresh (not frozen). So, whip up a batch and keep them in the fridge for the week as an easy grab and go snack for yourself or the kids.

These chocolate chip muffins make a great snack for:

  • Day adventures (hiking, exploring, etc)
  • Warm days you do not want to turn the oven on
  • For kids as they are running around

Sometimes it can be tricky to get kids in for a snack. Stay on top of their fuel by having healthy homemade muffins on hand and ready to go.

    Ingredients
    Instructions
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mash the banana and melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Whisk the maple syrup and coconut oil into the banana and set aside. In a larger bowl, mix the flours and baking powders. Pour wet into dry and combine well. Fold in the chocolate chips. Line a muffin tin with silicone muffin cups and bake in the oven for 21 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool fully in the pan (about thirty minutes). If you do not let them cool, the chocolate syrup will melt when you pipe it. Spoon the chocolate sauce into a Ziplock bag and pipe it onto the muffins. Enjoy! These chocolate chip muffins are a little bit dessert mixed in with a healthy snack. They are light, fluffy, and indulgent thanks to their chocolate topping. Perfect for busy days when you need some fuel and you do not want to be inside.
