I’ve been reading some new cookbooks lately and found a fantastic gluten-free, grain-free cookbook that’s all about breads. And not just breads – but also muffins, cookies, cakes tortillas and even donuts. It’s called the Gluten-Free & Grain-Free Breads, Batters & Doughs by Halle Cottis of Whole Lifestyle Nutrition.
And here’s one I was excited to try… the Grain Free Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins Recipe. Yum!
This isn’t any ordinary chocolate chip muffin recipe. This one is both gluten free and grain free PLUS it’s made with pumpkin spice – giving it a delicious fall flavor.
My kids went nuts over these muffins. They begged for more and I discovered them just in time to take to my oldest son’s school birthday celebration. I love that this recipe is just a few ingredients and free of artificial ingredients.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
