I took the original recipe found on this site and changed it up to be gluten-free and lower in sugar/fats. These muffins were highly praised, thinking these were too good to be gluten-free! I prefer to cut the fats and sugars in half by using applesauce and agave nectar.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl; add egg and beat until creamy.
Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and allspice together in another bowl. Stir 1/2 the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Stir applesauce into butter mixture; mix well. Stir remaining 1/2 the flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined; add oats and chocolate chips. Pour muffin batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 25 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then finish it off the next day.
