Vegan gluten-free muffins are so easy to make!
Step 1: Make brown butter. This step is so easy, yet it makes so much difference.
In a small pot put the vegan butter and bring it to a boil. Cook for about 1 minute or until changing in color.
Trick: If your vegan butter is water-based use vegan margarine or simply add 1 tsp or coconut oil!
Cool the brown butter a little bit before moving on to the next step.
Prepare a large bowl and pour in the brown butter. Now, we can add the rest of the ingredients.

Step 2: Into wet ingredients add sorghum flour, corn flour, gf oat flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
Combine and create a smooth and fluffy batter. if you feel like the batter is too runny, feel free to add more liquid, the same thing applies to the opposite scenario.
Step 3: This is almost the last step. Now, we can add blackberries and chocolate. If your blackberries are large, cut them in half and it will be just fine.
Carefully combine. The batter for these gluten-free blackberry muffins with chocolate is done.

Serve these gluten-free blackberry muffins dusted with powdered sugar. You can also serve them warm so the chocolate is nice and melted.
Store these gluten-free muffins in a fridge for up to 3-4 days.
I don’t recommend freezing it because the consistency might change. But they are the best eaten within the first 2 days.
Can I substitute shredded zucchini for mashed banana or apple sauce?
Yes, you can, but keep in mind it will affect the flavor.
Is it necessary to add the baking powder with baking soda?
Yes. Gluten-free baking needs more than just baking powder. Adding extra baking soda makes a huge difference.
Can I add chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate?
Absolutely! Feel free to add chocolate chips. It's all about your preferences. If you like small chunks of chocolate just add chocolate chips, but if you like larger pieces of chocolate add chopped chocolate.
