You can easily make gluten free chocolate chip muffins by swapping out one ingredient!

Notes:

Wanna mix it up? You can use milk chocolate chips which will make it a little sweeter. I like semi-sweet chocolate chips. But you could also use dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips.

Semisweet chocolate chips is just the right sweetness for me, kind of the mid-grade sweet level. But milk and white will make your bakery-style chocolate chip muffins sweeter and semi sweet and dark will make them less so. It all depends on what you prefer.
