Double Chocolate Muffins (gluten free & dairy free)

My bakery style double chocolate chip muffins are soft and gooey, with lots of melty chocolate chips. They are gluten and dairy free but you wouldn’t know! If you make this recipe I’d love to see, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will these muffins last?

These muffins will last in an airtight container for up to 4 days however, are always best served on the day you make them.

Which dairy free chocolate chips/chunks do you use?

Any dairy free chocolate would work, however I used the Sainsburys Dark Chocolate Baking Chips which do not contain any milk for inside the muffins and the Nomo Creamy Chocolate Bar for the topping. If you can’t find any dairy free chocolate chips you can just cut up a bar of dairy free chocolate for inside the muffins too.

Which dairy free plain yoghurt do you use?

I use the Alpro Plain No Sugars Yoghurt, however any plain neutral tasting yoghurt would also work.

Which gluten free flour do you use for the cake? 

For this recipe, and the majority of my bakes, I use the FREEE Gluten Free Plain Flour  which works really well in gluten free baking.
