Chocolate helps create a joyful heart in this fudge muffin recipe! Pay special attention to labels when shopping so that your treats will be totally gluten-free.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Place 8 paper liners in muffin tin; coat with cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine applesauce and next 4 ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the next 6 ingredients. Add oat mixture to applesauce mixture; stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Step 3

Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake for 20–22 minutes, rotating the pan a half-turn after 10 minutes. Muffins are done when tops are firm to the touch.

Step 4

Cool slightly. Top with powdered sugar, if desired.

I have not yet tried these, but felt it important to comment: be sure to use gluten-free oat flour if you are making this for someone sensitive to gluten!!!! Also, it's a good idea to ask first if they can tolerate gf oats (not everyone with celiac can)! Otherwise this sounds wonderful :-)

These are so delicious, especially if you eat them warm straight out of the oven. I didn't use any oil, used whole wheat flour (1 cup) and added a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon. Yum!!!
