Sugar Free Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins
Gluten Free Living – 2024
Sugar Free Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins are a delightful way to enjoy a sweet treat without all the extra calories from sugar or using regular flour. I used healthy ingredients to create this recipe including Monk Fruit Sweetener without erythritol, sugar-free chocolate chips that were made with dates to provide natural sweetening, and gluten free flour. My favorite blend is Cup4Cup for taste and texture although I used King Arthur gluten free flour for this recipe.
Back in early September I made two sweet treats using Monk Fruit Sweetener rather than regular sugar. I made these muffins first, then I made Raspberry Almond Crunch Muffins. I went through these muffins in short order! It’s one thing to make muffins gluten free. It’s a totally different ball game to try to make them sugar free as well. While Monk Fruit Sweetener works really well, it has a completely different texture than cane sugar so the lift on the muffins when baking is different. But all in all, I LOVED how these muffins turned out.
Remember, I was trying to use the healthiest ingredients possible. This meant I stayed away from many sweeteners that I could have used. It was also hard finding chocolate chips with all natural ingredients. But I prevailed! Believe it or not, I found the chocolate chips at a local Walmart. They don’t carry them regularly. I think they were a one-off. Even still, sugar free chocolate chips are readily available at most grocery stores.
While I made this muffin recipe with healthy ingredients, it can easily be made with regular chocolate chips, regular flour and plain sugar if you don’t have dietetic needs that decree otherwise. The main flavors and texture are simply wonderful. Enjoy.

I used these ingredients for the streusel topping.

Cut in butter with a pastry blender.
Keep cutting in butter until coarse crumbs form.
