These paleo chocolate chip muffins have a great texture similar to angel food cake! Scroll down for a how-to recipe video.

So. Things have been slow around here! I don’t really get the chance to bake much. Today’s muffin recipe is really just my paleo blueberry muffins but with a few changes.

I feel kind of like a cheater with posting these. Or just lazy. But creating a totally new recipe that I have to try a dozen times before perfecting just isn’t in the cards right now.

I am close to getting down a paleo chocolate cheesecake recipe! Can’t wait to share it.

I’ve made these gluten-free chocolate chip muffins so many times and one time, they sank a bit. I really think it had something to do with the weather.

It was a bit humid on that day and given you have to beat egg whites, I think that would explain it. They were still delicious! Just kind of sad that they sank.

I call for mini chocolate chips for the tops of the muffins just to be safe. If you don’t have any on hand, you can just omit them! I’ve also made them with regular-sized chocolate chips on top with no problem but figure it’s best to play it safe.

For some more chocolaty paleo muffins, try these chocolate banana muffins. They’re so fudgy!

So now for why things are so slow on the blog! Björn is now 10 weeks old and doesn’t like to be put down.

We can put him on the play mat or in his swing for 10 minutes max. I usually take that opportunity to shove some food down my throat. And just putting him in his crib and having him go to sleep doesn’t work, either.

A few months ago, I read some food bloggers giving advice to pregnant food bloggers, saying things like, “You’ll be surprised by how much work you’ll get done! I was able to work so much those first few months!” Bahaha. No. Not with this baby. It took me over 2 weeks just to write the text for this post.

He may be fussy but he is fun! Here we are baking my gluten-free peanut butter cookies for Christmas (if you don’t do peanut butter, check out my paleo peanut butter cookies recipe!).

Look how carefully Björn listened before starting to mix. :D By the way, the vodka bottle in the background is homemade vanilla. Just in case anyone was wondering. ;)

Our next baking attempt will be these paleo cupcakes and then my paleo chocolate chip cookies, or rather a new variation of those because they’re such a great base!

Substitution questions for these paleo chocolate chip muffins:

  • Can I omit the eggs / use an egg replacement? Nope. You’re beating the yolks and whites separately for this recipe and it’s important for the texture.
  • Can I use another type of flour? I’ve only tried these with hazelnut meal, which worked great. Almond meal would work, too. Another type of nut flour / meal might work but I can’t say for sure since I haven’t tried it.

    All-purpose gluten-free flour, wheat flour, rice flour, etc. will not work here. If you want something with whole wheat, try these triple chocolate muffins from RecipeGirl!

  • Can I use something else in place of the chocolate chips? You can use fresh blueberries. I think frozen ones would make the batter too soggy and it’s a delicate batter – I wouldn’t want to take the chance!

    I’m thinking other types of fruit would be too juicy and have the same effect on the batter but I haven’t tried it.

  • Can I use something else in place of the coconut sugar? You can use granulated sugar (which means they’re no longer paleo). Liquid sweetener won’t work. I also have no idea how to make these low-carb.
