Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Muffins

I have a feeling that if we were to go back in time to the early 80’s and eat a muffin, we’d be disappointed. Are you old enough to remember disco era muffins? Let me set the stage. Picture Mom, slim, young and pretty, in her brown plaid, ruffle front shirt, and her swoopy hairdo, apron tied on, (unneeded) weight watchers book in one hand, bottle of liquid sweetener in the other, making muffins. Small, hard, low fat muffins. Raisins added in to compensate for the fact that you had to eat them with a mouthful of milk just to make them go all the way down your throat. Enough bran that even the neighbors would be regular this week. They’d usually sit on the counter for a few days and the ones that Dad didn’t drown in margarine would eventually be donated to the NHL as practice pucks.

Fast forward to the 21st century. We have instant access to all information. We can watch a movie on our telephone. Our CARS don’t fly yet, but they actually talk back to us (oh yeah, Knight Rider). And muffins are amazing. We still call them muffins though, because Mom’s still looming in our mind and we wouldn’t dare eat cupcakes for breakfast.
This recipe is a happy twist on Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.

  1. Jodi, I haven’t made it up to the 80’s yet! I still live in the 50’s and 60’s! :)

    Your Triple Chocolate Muffins look heavenly, and I will give them a try soon! Actually, I haven’t blogged in quite awhile because I’ve had a ton of stuff happening and going on. Things are finally settling down and I can take a little time to blog. I just made Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins gluten free, and will blog the recipe tonight or tomorrow sometime. They were not nearly as scrumptious looking as yours, but they were pretty good!
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    • Hi Joanne! I love things baked with buttermilk, but I’ve never actually tried it myself. I’m going to pick some up the next time I’m at walmart and maybe I could try your recipe. :)

    • Aw, thanks Paula, that’s sweet! I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Saturday Dishes on a regular basis. The topic list has already inspired so many ideas.
