Gluten Free Oat Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 10, 2011

Here’s a simple Gluten Free breakfast muffin for you…with a little chocolate-y surprise!

They call for brown rice flour, and GF certified oats…both of which I had stashed on the gluten free shelf in my pantry. Stir in a few chocolate chips (here are my favorite allergy free chocolate chips), and you’ve got a lovely breakfast.

When it comes to baking muffins or loaves with gluten free flours, I find that the “minis” work better.  Mini-muffins or mini-loaves (this is the mini-loaf pan that I use.) Plus, they freeze and thaw well too.

Perfect for a busy “on the run” kind of morning!

any ideas how much GF flour mix this would take instead of all the flours measured out separately?
