My morning routine goes a little something like this: Wake up, get dressed, head outside, garden while it’s only 70 degrees, go inside, make breakfast, eat, clean up after breakfast. While we’re out there weeding the garden, pruning the tomatoes, and picking berries, our stomachs are empty and in dire need of food. Sure a berry or two slips in here and there, but for the most part we yearn for breakfast.

It makes me wonder how some people can just skip breakfast. Yesterday, I really wanted to use the Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour I received from the kind people of Bob’s Red Mill to make breakfast with so I whipped up a basic muffin batter, added some chocolate chips, and made the BEST gluten free chocolate chip muffins ever.

You can thank me later.

I was surprised at how well the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour did at replicating the results of a wheat flour muffin. The muffin was still tender, moist and downright delicious. Plus, it also rose in the same manner as a wheat flour muffin. 

I will definitely be using this in the future if I ever need to make a recipe gluten free in a flash. I love that there’s no need to add xanthan gum because it’s already in it!

So, you wanna know how easy these babies are to make? Well, you’re in luck because this post has been updated with a short, visual tutorial!

Start by mixing together the batter. Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl, the wet ingredients in a large bowl, and combine the two. 

You don’t really have to worry about overmixing the batter but to keep these on the tender side, I still like to mix the batter until it’s just combined.

Add in those glorious chocolate chips and fold them in. I’ve found that 1/2 cup of chocolate chips works best, but you can increase or decrease the amount if you’d like!

Enter the muffins baker’s best friend: an ice cream scoop. You can evenly disperse the batter and there’s no need to dirty your hands or any more spoons. This recipe makes exactly 12 large muffins.

Then just place the pan in the oven and bake them for 15-20 minutes.

Mmmmm. These gluten free chocolate chip muffins are addictive. Not to mention stunning. And tasty. Everyone will be begging for more, I’m not even joking. It’s such a simple recipe, yet these muffins turn out like the kind straight out of a bakery. 

These gluten free chocolate chips are even better than the whole wheat chocolate chip muffins I made for my sister’s birthday a few months ago, which was a bit of a surprise to me because those muffins were to die for.

    They look delicious and gluten free is right up my street! :) I haven’t used this mix, I use Bob’s red Mill gluten free flours almost exclusively but tend to make my own blends, is it dairy free? I saw another brand’s cup for cup blend and it had milk powder in it so I didn’t buy it.

    • Sarah says

      Namaste brand’s perfect flour blend (available at Costco and on amazon as well as a handful of other regional stores) is also dairy free and nut free (and several other allergens-free as well). Cup for Cup brand is also dairy free.

    Hi Margaret Anne, these muffins look delicious. But I need to know, is it true that 1 tablespoon baking powder? Thanks..

  3. Sabina says

    Hi!! Is there any other gluten free flour mix I can substitute the 1 for 1 mix with? I can’t find it in singapore

    • says

      Hi Sabina! So sorry you’re having a hard time finding it! Any other gluten free flour SHOULD work in this recipe, but I haven’t tried any other brand or type of gluten free flour so I can’t guarantee consistent results. Let me know if you try it! Thanks for stopping by! :)

        I made these yesterday or attempted to, followed the recipe exactly, and they did not look like the photos posted. The mix was not doughy but runny as if it was cake mix. The muffins were so dense and heavy. Hmmm…..

        • says

          Hmm, that’s odd Belizon! Every time I’ve made these muffins, the batter has been very thick. I wonder what could have gone wrong! I’m so sorry the recipe didn’t work for you.

    • Pui Shi says

      Hi Sabina, I’m from Singapore.
      intially i bought Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF flour from iHerb but I’m pleased to find that most Cold Storage carries it now. Go check it out! :-)

  4. Joanne Stinson says

    When you measure the milk and oil, do you use a liquid measuring cup or dry? I used a liquid one and the batter was extremely runny so I thought perhaps you used the dry cup to measure.

    • says

      Hi Joanne!I almost always use a liquid measuring cup to measure the wet ingredients. I’m not sure why the batter was so runny, as there are many factors that could have caused it.

  5. Franca says

    Hi, since I can’t have any dairy can I substitute the 2 cups of milk with unsweetened coconut milk in the cans.

    • says

      Hi Franca! I haven’t tried making these muffins with canned coconut milk, so I’m not sure how it will work out. However, most milks can be substituted, so I think it’s worth a shot. Let me know if you try it! Thanks!

  6. Danielle says

    Ok so I made these for my daughter today, they came out awesome regardless of the fact that I forgot to add the sugar!!!!! So for those of us baking in a rush if you forget the sugar they are still awesome!!!!

  7. Genie says

    OMG OMG, these are soooo good! I’m snarfing them down right now. I substituted coconut oil (melted) for the vegetable oil because mine was old (I don’t use it very much anymore). It worked perfectly. I measured out just under 1/3 cup solid coconut oil and melted in a liquid measuring cup to make sure it came out to 1/3 cup liquid oil. AMAZING! I’m going to work with this basic recipe to see what others I can come up with.

  8. Caroline says

    This recipe is great! I used corn oil instead of vegetable oil and it worked fine. Also, I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over the unbaked muffins right before I put them in the oven, they taste great! I recommend.

  9. Kimberly says

    I substituted a bunch to make this a little cleaner and also dairy free. I used organic coconut sugar, almond milk, grapeseed oil, and dairy nut and soy free chocolate chips. They came out ok. A little heavy, so I’m going to try coconut oil in the next batch. But my husband said they were good, and that’s saying a lot (I didn’t tell him they were dairy and gluten free lol!)

  10. Joy says

    Love this recipe. I add 1/4 twp of orange extract. I also do almond milk instead of milk. We currently can’t eat eggs right now so I recently made them with egg replacer as well and they turned out the same
