GLUTEN FREE PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM CHEESE MUFFINS

GLUTEN FREE PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM CHEESE MUFFINS

Recipe from:  Goodies Gone Gluten Free


Pumpkin bread:


1 3/4 cups gluten free all purpose flour blend (I use the flour blend on the blog )

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tsp. xanthan gum (if your blend does not contain it)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

3/4 tsp salt

3 eggs

1/2 cup oil (canola or light olive oil)

1/3 cup water

1 cup pumpkin

pecans for top of muffins (optional)


Topping:


8 oz. package cream cheese

1 egg

1/3 cup sugar

1/8 tsp. salt 

1 12 oz. package of semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Beat well the topping ingredients and stir in chocolate chips.  Set aside.


Sift together flour, sugar, soda, xanthan gum, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  Combine eggs, oil, water and pumpkin and mix well.  Stir into dry ingredients.  Fill muffin tin with liners and fill each cup 3/4 full.  Top each with a heaping teaspoon of cream cheese mixture and top with some chopped pecans if desired.  Bake for 25-35 minutes or until muffins are puffed and set and cream cheese isn't wet on top.  Cool completely before serving.
