Not the best Chocolate Muffins..

I'm in a mood, i guess. because this recipe is not gluten free! *GASP* 

Really, i was just cleaning out the pantry and I found all these flours that I can't use in gluten free baking (whole wheat, Kamut, Spelt) - After reading the recipe, be sure to read my comments below as you might want to make adjustments! To make this recipe gluten free, replace the flours with 2 cups rice flour, 1 cup millet flour and 1 cup tapioca starch + 2 teaspoons xanthan gum

3 cups Spelt flour
1 cup Kamut flour
1 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar & sucanant) 
2 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup almond milk
2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 cup chocolate chips 
hand full of slivered almond

Mix dry ingredients (except chocolate chips/nuts) and wet ingredients separately then combine & stir (but do not over stir) - fold in chocolate chips & nuts, then fill paper-lined (this is important, without oil they stick!!) muffin cups three-fourths full and bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.  I added some chocolate chips and almond slivers to the top to make them pretty.. 

So..  these look great, but they aren't very sweet or very chocolaty ..  I drizzled a bit of chocolate syrup on top and they taste fabulous!  they did stick to the muffin papers BAD, probably because of the lack of oil, if you sub back in oil instead of apple sauce they probably wouldn't stick, and they might need a 1/4 cup or so more milk..
