  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. Place ¾ cup of cooked red lentils in a food processor and pulse until they are smooth. (If you have really cooked your lentils down until they are mush, you can skip this step and mash with a fork, but I have tried it both ways and I think the result is better if you use the food processor).
  3. Place the red lentil puree in a bowl and add the organic canola oil, sugar, water, and cocoa powder. Stir well.
  4. Add the gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well until combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir again.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tin. Bake at 400 degrees F for 17-19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

  6. Cool muffins on a wire rack.
