Gluten-Free Choc Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Recipe by  

"I took the original recipe found on this site and changed it up to be gluten-free and lower in sugar/fats. These muffins were highly praised, thinking these were too good to be gluten-free! I prefer to cut the fats and sugars in half by using applesauce and agave nectar."

Amazing! Maybe cause I used wheat flour ??

A nice gluten-free muffin! I found them too sweet with 3/4 cup brown sugar, so I will cut it down to 1/2 cup next time. When I looked at the original recipe,1/4 c. of the brown sugar was originally sprinkled on top with chopped pecans. I will just leave it out. I did substitute 1 cup of a raisin/craisin mix for the chocolate chips. The muffins were moist and delicious and enjoyed by wheat eaters as well as those of us on a gluten-free diet! Thanks for a "keeper"!

It was really good for a gluten free muffin. I made half chocolate chip and half blueberry. It is a little on the sweeter side but I thought it was really good this way. I might try it with mashed banana instead of apple sauce next time to switch it up. All and all a great recipe that I will use again. Thank you!

I cut the brown sugar down to 1/2 cup, but these muffins were still VERY sweet.
