Skinny (and Gluten Free) Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 1/4 cups of Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten-Free Baking Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (check container to ensure it is gluten free)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/4 cup granulated sugar 
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed  
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce 
1 egg white, beaten 
2/3 cup diced strawberries 
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 10 muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray (or line with cups). Set aside. 

In a large bowl, gently toss the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and applesauce until together until no brown sugar lumps remain - a fork works well to break up the brown sugar here. Add the beaten egg white until fully incorporated. Add the wet ingredients to the dry until just combined - do not overmix. Fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly between 10 muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Muffins will be lightly golden in color and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. Allow muffins to cool and enjoy! 

Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for 7 days. Muffins can be frozen.
