Posted by Bryna Bear aka Gluten Free Baking Bear

     These muffins have a rich chocolate taste that satisfies my chocoholic cravings. Yum! The use of Dutch process cocoa instead of regular cocoa gives these both a deep dark chocolate color and flavor.  I converted a regular wheat recipe that I found on the KingArthur Flour site into a gluten free one.
     I had never used Dutch process cocoa before and had to look up the difference.  Dutch process cocoa has been processed to make it less acidic or more alkaline.  This makes a big difference in what leavening to use with this type of cocoa.  Baking powder is a must to give the recipe enough acidity to rise.  Recipes using regular cocoa can rise if you use just baking soda.  In other words the recipe will not rise enough if you don't use the right type and amount of leavening for the type of cocoa used.
     I really love how powerful the chocolate flavor is in these muffins.  This recipe is a keeper!
