I’ve been playing around with gluten free baked goods a lot lately, and while it’s a little different from baking with regular wheat flour, it’s just as fun!

I created this recipe from the gluten free muffin base recipe I’ve been perfecting. To create a mocha flavor, I added a little bit of espresso powder, cocoa powder, and Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter. Together, those three ingredients add so much flavor to this basic muffin recipe.

These Gluten Free Peanut Butter Mocha Muffins are so soft, light, and indulgent! They also take less than 30 minutes to prepare, start to finish.
