Chocolate Muffins

It's a Monday. Sometimes Monday's call for muffins, and even more so, some Mondays call for chocolate muffins. Yes!  These are the kind of muffins that will get you out of bed and on your way. They won't let you linger, or press snooze ONE.MORE.TIME. or even have you wish this day never came. It won't be just another manic Monday if you can start it with one of these babies. They will have you ready to face the hard stuff, one step at a time.
And not to mention with a serving of pumpkin, dates and banana hidden in there beneath the energizing cocoa these really are FULL of GOODNESS too. You can nourish yourself with the good stuff and also have fun doing it! Some days call for the big guys to come out and help you through, and if you got some of these sweet muffins on your side I know you can do this. You were born for this. Don't give up on being you and doing what you know best. We all need you and you are the best person for the job. Happy baking and happy Monday, friends!!!
Chocolate Muffin Recipe
{gluten, dairy, egg, nut, seed, soy and refined-sugars-free}

1 1/2 cup of freshly ground certified gluten-free oat flour
(or use buckwheat flour as a replacement)
3/4 cup of white rice flour
1/2 cup of tapioca flour
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
2 ts. of baking powder
1 ts. of baking soda
1 ts. of sea salt
optional: add in a drizzle of vanilla
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of date puree
heaping 1/2 cup of mashed banana
1/2 cup of coconut milk beverage
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/4 cup of avocado oil
1/4 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of dairy-free choclate chips to sprinkle on top before baking

In a large mixing bowl, mix in all the dry ingredients together first, then add in the wet and mix together well. Until you get a smooth and creamy chocolately mixture. Then use a 1/3 measuring cup already greased with avocado/coconut oil and measure out heaping 1/3 cup muffins into muffin parchments. This recipe should make about 12-16 muffins depending on your heaps. Top muffins with extra dairy-free chocolate chips to make it real special and then bake in a 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes or until they are stiff and no gooey middles. Let cool for 15-20 minutes before you serve. 

Then grab your favorite cupa-hot-something and ENJOY your morning...your day... and all of it...because these will get you on the right step in all the right!

Much love, xoxo
