Gluten Free Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins

This is a really simple recipe. Due to the oil in the recipe the muffins stay moist for a while and the raspberries also help with this. Again, I don’t go all out with expensive chocolate and use frozen raspberries as they are cheaper than fresh but just as nice and a little more tart which is perfect to make sure you still taste them through the richness of the chocolate…

To make this recipe dairy free, replace the milk with almond or coconut Milk, both available at all good supermarkets. Then replace the chocolate chunks with dairy free ones and remove the ganache and replace with chocolate icing, made using cocoa powder, icing sugar and water.

Gluten Free Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins

Serves 10-12


  • 200g Gluten Free Plain Flour (I use Doves Farm)
  • 350g Caster Sugar
  • 80g Cocoa Powder
  • 1 ½ tsp Baking Powder (check that this is GF)
  • 1 ½ tsp of Bicarbonate Soda
  • 2 Eggs
  • 250ml Milk
  • 125ml Vegetable Oil
  • 2 drops of Vanilla Extract
  • 100g Frozen Raspberries (some extra for topping)
  • 150g Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • For the Chocolate Ganache
  • 100g Plain Chocolate
  • 100ml Double Cream


  1. Fill 2 Muffin trays with Cases, (I like to use Tulip cases) (see photo) as they look really nice
  2. In a large bowl sift the Flour, Cocoa Powder, and Baking Powders and put this to one side
  3. Mix the eggs and oil and slowly add this to the dry ingredients to form a paste, continuously stirring and adding the rest
  4. Measure out the milk and add this to the rest of the mixture
  5. Add the chocolate and frozen raspberries
  6. Divide the mixture between 10-12 muffin cases
  7. Bake in a fan assisted oven at 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes, increase the temperature to 220 degrees if you do not have a fan assisted oven.
  8. Once the muffins have baked and cooled, make the ganache
  9. In a pan heat up the cream but do not boil; once warm add the chocolate, stirring continuously. Take off the heat and stir until all of the chocolate has melted and the mix has thickened and become glossy
  10. Drizzle this onto your muffins and place some more raspberries on top of each muffin
  11. Invite your friends round for a cuppa and enjoy these delicious gluten free treats
