Gluten Free & Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

So the Paleo treats continue! Found this recipe online on a random website. I had all the ingredients, so I gave it whirl! These are moist, but not too dense, and have a wonderful chocolate flavor. I also love the Enjoy Life mini dairy free chocolate chips in them. I had never tried them before and they are amazing! You can get them at your local Natural food store. I got mine at Natural Groceries, but I'm pretty sure you can get them at Whole Foods and places like that. They are tiny too so they are not overwhelming. Pair these delectable muffins with a tall cold glass of milk or almond milk and you got yourself a fantastic snack/dessert. Simple :)
