I just started dated a gluten free guy (I’m not). I love to make muffins and used to make them for boyfriends but I am really intimidated to bake without wheat flour. What is your simplest recipe that is sure to please? Something nutritious as well. We both try to eat healthy.

Great question! I’ve actually been trying to eat a bit healthier myself (my boyfriend and I are dabbling in Paleo recipes) and I have had amazing luck with a Banana Nut Chocolate Chip muffin recipe I found on PaleoOMG. I’ve made these muffins 4-5 times in the past 2 months and my boyfriend cannot get enough of them. I have pasted the PaleoOMG recipe below, but just a few tips: I can usually get 10-12 muffins out of this, I use a regular muffin pan w/paper muffin cups, and I use whatever Chocolate Chips I have on hand as I have a hard time coughing up the $$ for the Evolved Baking Chocolate.  Regardless, if you follow this recipe to the letter you will get killer muffins that also happen to be gluten-free and tasty!
