* The blueberry chocolate mixture should be warm as the chocolate starts to thicken when cooling, making it difficult to fold in the dry ingredients and making more of a doughy batter. The mixture should not be too hot else it will melt the chocolate chips in the dry.To make these gluten-free: Use 3/4 cup oat flour + 2 tbsp tapioca or corn starch + 1/3 cup almond flour instead of the 1 cup flour + 1/4 cup almond flour.Nutritional calculations based on one serving
