Welcome back! We’re heading into the final week of March Muffin Madness (MMM), but don’t worry, there are plenty more glorious gluten-free muffin recipes, new daily prizes, and more chances to enter the overall/grand prize giveaway. You know the one, right? If not, be sure to check out all the prizes—including a Blendtec—at the bottom of this post. Now for those Grain-Free Chili Cheese Muffins …
Grain-Free Chili Cheese Muffins from Elana’s Pantry
These Grain-Free Chili Cheese Muffins come from my dear friend Elana of Elana’s Pantry. These grain-free muffins are made using just six ingredients, which means they come together quickly. You know they have to be good because “chili” and “cheese” is a match made in heaven.
I love Elana’s suggestion to serve them with eggs for a delicious and complete breakfast. Of course, as I’m a big fan of “brinner,” I’d be more likely to enjoy them much later in the day. However, Elana’s suggested combo would be ideal as a breakfast for overnight guests.
Of course, because we’re in MMM, I want to highlight some more of Elana’s muffin recipes, of course.
~ Bran Muffins,
~ Paleo Carrot Banana Muffins (this is the recipe Elana shared during MMM last year),
~ Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins,
~ Pizza Muffins, and
~ Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins.
Of course, the first recipe that I ever enjoyed of Elana’s was her original Chocolate Chip Cookies, the recipe that you can now find on the back of the bag of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour (which is also one of our prizes for MMM). I’ve told the story many times before, but Elana literally saved a group of gluten-free bloggers with these cookies. We were all at a cocktail party at a bloggers’ conference with nary a gluten-free food item in sight and she whips out this box of cookies that she’d toted from Colorado to California. Can you imagine how good her cookies tasted that evening? I also love her super simple scones, like these Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones (although most of the time I make them without the orange zest).
Before you click over to see the details of Elana’s Chili Cheese Muffins recipe, be sure to enter today’s daily giveaway (it includes Elana’s bestselling cookbook!) and please don’t miss yesterday’s Carrot Ginger Muffins. Make sure you’re also entered in the overall/grand prize giveaway as well—and continue to be entered as every comment on every single post during MMM is an entry. Gotta love that!

I’ve not had chili cheese muffins before, might have to make this weekend.
Denise M says
This sounds yummy, i am a big fan of hers. I also cannot wait to own the new Yiddish book
I follow all three of these ladies’ blogs- would LOVE to win these cookbooks! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
These books look like they have some great ideas!
New to Paleo, need all the help I can get, look like great and easy recipes
These muffins look delicious but I’m saddened that they use real cheese. Anyone try a substitute?
I love Elana’s recipes! And Jewish cooking!
Janis S says
I like Elana’s recipes. They are easy to make and I know they will come out good because I live on Denver, just an hour away from Elana! Some recipes don’t bake well at altitude.
I already have a couple of her cookbooks, including the cupcake one in the giveaway. I’d love to win the other cookbook so I can still make Jewish recipes, but gluten free ones. So many of the traditional recipes use regular flour.
I am grain free so I would just love to win Elana’s cookbook. Muffins look good too.
Shirley Ben-Ami says

The new Yiddish kitchen looks amazing
Emily S. says
I’d love to win Elena’s book!
I would love to win one of these books.
Tessa Simpson says
I know and enjoy Elan’s cookbooks! And the The Yiddish Kitchen is another I have wanted to look through!
Sarah V. says
Chili cheese muffins sound delicious, the perfect thing to go with a pot of homemade chili!
Susan Mazess says
I don’t usually eat much dairy but these muffins sound delicious and worth the small dairy splurge!
Everyday I read a new muffin recipe and can’t wait to try them. They all look so good.
Melissa R says
I love savory muffins. Those look great!
