Almost Sugar-free, Gluten-free Super Chocolate "Muffins"

Almost Sugar-free, Gluten-free Super Chocolate "Muffins"

By San Diego Dining Dish

I've had a number of requests for some gluten-free recipes. I've never baked gluten-free, and I'm still trying to determine how to create gluten-free baked goods that rise nicely. These muffins are muffins only in the loosest of terms. They are in little cups, are breakfast-y, but contain no flour. They are created using eggs and gluten-free rolled oats. They are excellent little healthy snacks, perfect for after school or coffee breaks. They are very simple to make, and bake up in 20 minutes. Perfect to mix up first thing in the morning, then allow to bake up while you shower!

In a medium bowl, mash up the bananas using a potato masher or large fork. Once they are nice and smooshy, stir in the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips, and stir until well mixed.
