Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

“This is a recipe that my 9 year old daughter made up one day for my mother who has Celiac disease. She went down to my mom's kitchen and just started kinda playing in the kitchen. She just started adding things into the bowl without any recipe and was about to pour it into muffin cups when she decided she should ask for permission and help. I came down and she told me what she'd put in the mixing bowl, and it all sounded good except she hadn't added any xantham gum, which I suggested and explained why. We added the xantham gum, baked it up, and it was a great success with her grandma and our friend Kenny who also can't have wheat. Today, she's re-created it and we decided to write it down to share. Hope you enjoy it!”
