Chocolate Chip Muffin (Paleo/Gluten Free) (Edit recipe)

We all have a love affair with chocolate chip cookies, so this felt like a recipe that might be most welcomed for so many folks! It is a tasty muffin, made with cassava flour, truly simply flavored and delicious. Feel free to toss in some chopped nuts or even some toasted coconut to give it some additional flavor and texture. Be sure to have one while it's still warm, there is just something about enjoying one right out of the oven. They do freeze well, so make a double batch and keep them on hand!
