Why You’ll Love Chocolate Muffin & Cupcake Mix
Going gluten-free is something that millions of people have done because they have gluten sensitivity issues or just because they find that they feel more energized and healthy when they cut out the gluten based grains.
For those who choose to eliminate gluten from their diet—and for those who are Paleo—one thing that can be hard to find is baked goods. Desserts like cupcakes or muffins are not even an option, but thanks to Simple Mills Chocolate Muffin and Cupcake Mix these tasty treats can be enjoyed once again since it’s completely gluten-free.

This is going to be a regular
I'm really impressed. This came out super moist and fluffy! I'm ready to try all of the flavors!
Best Brownie Mix Ever
I received this product free as part of a promotion last order. We have always been disappointed when purchasing a boxed gluten-free brownie mixes so we make our own. This chocolatey, gluten-free brownie-mix dream has changed that forever! As a couponer, I wait for sales and deals and use coupons to get the cheapest prices. So the fact that I am ordering a box today at full price attests to the extraordinary quality and taste of this product. You will not be disappointed. Best of all, the versatility to make brownies, cake, cupcakes or muffins from one mix? Food genius!
so delicious, texture is moist and slightly grainy im in love <3 wish the portions were bigger though I guess im just use to gigantic american portion sized muffins though lol!
Tastes like REAL cake - so good!
This blew me away - at first bite I panicked because it was way too good to be Paleo. I've tried countless recipes at home and bought this because of a time constraint on a whim not expecting much. It is so much better than any recipe I've tried and tastes like real cake with all the gluten and sugar. Definitely buying more and using regularly now rather than my recipes - it was also so simple to make! Highly recommend it!
New favorite brand for baked goods!
Having finally come to terms with the amount of sugar my body can handle, I bought this cake mix in an effort to get my cake fix for my birthday. While the frosting and cake mix are very expensive vs normal mixes, it's nice to have a cake that tastes great, has a decently cake like texture, and doesn't upset my stomach. Also this cake mix only makes one 8-inch round, so be prepared if you're trying to make a layer cake.
These are fantastic, I will sometime make a Paleo ganache topping for the cupcakes!
Delish and simple.
I made mini muffins out of these to reduce my sugar intake. Really tasty... I even sprinkled some walnuts on top of half of them which was a great addition (but they're great on their own too). I love them and so does my boyfriend (who doesn't have any allergies or food sensitivities)
I'm experimented for years making my own paleo muffins out of a variety of different flours. And after years of perfecting, I find this. It's easy and makes killer muffins.
I'm a big fan!
This muffin mix is awesome! Delicious and easy.
a little grainy. I liked the low sugar content.
I made these, being somewhat skeptical after the bread mix and they came out great. YES, these are chocolatey goodness. I would order these again.
this is really good. However it sells for 6.99 at our local Whole Foods.....not sure this is a good buy, sorry.
Super Simple and Delicious!
The cupcake recipe is super easy to follow and very few ingredients are needed. The cupcakes are very tasty. There is no need to add sugar. 1 box rendered 12 cupcakes.
Good flavor but less than advertised yield
I made the muffins and ended up with 8, not 12, and these were not large. At most I think I could have stretched it to make 9. Flavor was good, although I added a dash of cinnamon and some dark chocolate chips. You can't taste the cinnamon but I do it for the health benefits ( cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar and has antioxidants).
I love these because they are gluten free, don't give me that too high sugar feeling and taste as soft and delicious as a regular flour cupcake! Allows me to have some baked treats again!!
Soooo good! Made these for a pot luck and everyone loved them! Will be purchasing again. :)
These are wonderful. Easy to make, quality ingredient list and they taste fantastic. I use coconut oil as the oil, and I add walnuts or a bit of espresso powder, etc to change it up .everyone who has had them loves them. They freeze well too.
- Donna M
Real chocolate flavor. Did not taste gluten free at all.
We enjoy these and buy them regularly. We have them as a weekend "treat" muffin, lots of cocoa flavor, which I prefer to sweetness.
We eat muffins daily. These are a good option if you are missing a chocolate fix. Great taste and texture.
Chocolate Muffin & Cake Mix
Very yummy. I use coconut oil and it gives the muffins a much richer taste.
My family really likes these muffins...especially when I throw in some cinnamon.
Must have for chocolate lovers
I made this using a loaf pan and it turned out great. I love that even with a few ingredients, the taste is so good! It's very rich and a little bit goes a long way to satisfy the sweet tooth.
Our go-to for birthdays!
This chocolate cake mix has become our family's go-to for birthday cupcakes! We love the simple ingredients (they could all be found in our pantry), and it's fun and easy for the kids to help bake them.
Chocolate muffin mix
I absolutely LOVE this product!! They are delicious! I'm hoping I see more other kind of muffins, like banana walnut or apple spice, or pumpkin.
- Frances Siecko
the Paleo cupcake and muffin mix is absolutely fantastic!!!! I love it!!!
Do you make other Paleo muffins like banana, or apple spice or any other kind?
- Frances Siecko
These are outstanding. Rich, chocolaty, hard to believe they are good for me.
Hallelujah! My chocolate fix on Paleo
I'm adhering to a Paleo diet for a couple of weeks to lean out a bit. The one thing I miss is sweet baked goods. This is it! I baked them the other night at midnight - I was in dire straights. They are fabulous! I substituted the grape seed/vegetable oil on the box for coconut oil. I melted the coconut oil into liquid and used the same measurement called for. Fantastic! I have a muffin with my coffee in the morning, or for a chocolate fix at night. Keep them in the fridge, though. Otherwise they will spoil too fast.
They taste as good as muffins made from wheat. I added an over ripe banana and some shredded coconut too.
Chocolatey but still feels healthy
First off, I love chocolate. I used this mix to make muffins (more vanilla extract and less water, per instructions on back). The batter was super easy to mix and you could tell it was whole grain. I expected the flavor to be off since it was meant to be healthy, but it tasted as chocolatey as if there was zero healthiness to it (that's a good thing in my eyes)
Easy and good
I make these as a mid-morning snack and sometimes add paleo chocolate chips. Easy to make and I really like them.
I had to change my diet to paleo because of some unfortunate health problems. These muffins are the best thing happened to me in the last 3 months. I am buying them again!
the taste of chocolate is such a necessity after switching from a high sugar/eat whatever I wanted diet. I eat these on the go as a breakfast muffin, or late night as a snack. will buy again.
Amazing Product for those with sensitive tummies
I have every food allergy in the book so finding this product was a godsend. I couldnt bake them as prescribed because I have a severe egg allergy, but replacing it even with a "flax seed" egg substitute (just flax and water), made this turn out so well. Just bought 4 more boxes! No shame here! haha! i caught my boyfriend shoveling these into his mouth too and he has no food allergies, so even people without food allergies will love this stuff!
I've tried many this one is one of the best!
We can eat cake! These worked for us. Without having to hunt down a million ingredients. Reordering to have on hand for those quick sweet moments.
So incredibly obsessed with these! Made them a few days ago as cupcakes and they were extremly moist and full of flavor!
I had chocolate cake for the first time in 2.5 years since eliminating grain from my diet! It was truly delicious, and the flavor improved even by the 4th day. (Kept refrigerated.) I whipped cream, added tiny bit of raw honey and vanilla, and put on top of slices of this cake. Also added a few fresh strawberry slices. Wahoo!
- Toni Jo
Tastes great and all healthy. Gluten free, dairy free, processed sugar free. Only problem I had was finding an amazing frosting to top it. Still haven't found it.
You'll want to make these even if you don't bake
I have a sweet tooth but also try to follow a paleo diet at home so these are the perfect treat. I love spreading almond butter on top and eating them for dessert or even breakfast!
Great moist cake
I will order again
These muffins were super easy to make and super good... even my extremely picky kid gave it a thumbs up. Peanut butter as a frosting on top of this muffin - amazing!
Chocolate muffin mix
This is a real treat. Sweet and moist.
Love these muffins
My son is 15 and has to be grain free and dairy free. These muffins are a delicious treat that he can have that make him feel like he's not missing out. They're easy to make so good for me too.
Chocolate Muffin & Cupcake Mix
These were better than I expected AND I used an egg substitute of oil, water & baking powder... extremely moist and just enough sweet to cure my craving. I baked less than recommended to prevent drying and they came out with a brownie consistency - i'll order again!
This cake mix is my favorite "healthy" go-to dessert. I usually make cupcakes with the mix & they are so moist & tasty that you would never know they were healthy!
These are delicious! I added some dark chocolate chips and made cupcakes. So good!
- Julie b
Delicious!! I made the cupcake version, adding walnuts & chocolate chips. Shortened the baking time to 18'. Not very pretty, but so good!
Good- but not discounted
They sure are tasty! But you can find them at Mariano's for $6.99 so it's not really a discount.
I've been searching for a good recipe or mix for grain free baked goods and this is it. I followed the directions for the cupcakes adding about 1/4 of Swerve to sweeten it up. Super moist and very chocolaty. Didn't even need frosting. Make sure to check them at the earliest time as you don't want to over cook them. Now if they could come up with a brownie mix...
I made these today with my two young boys, and we all gave them two thumbs up! We opted to make cupcakes out of them and added a little but of homemade frosting - delicious! They are also very quick to make and bake.
Great chocolate muffins.
This is my favorite gluten-free mix of Thrive's offerings. I order it again and again.
Great for chocolate lovers
These muffins were very moist and loaded with delicious chocolate flavor. I made these to feed my late night chocolate craving and they did not disappoint!
These are the best cupcakes--love them!!
Paleo cake. Paleo. CAKE!
My boyfriend started going paleo about six months before his birthday. I suggested that he make his birthday a "cheat day", but he wanted to remain consistent. I know that he loves chocolate cake, so I set out to find a replacement!
I can say, without shame, I ate the entire test batch myself over the course of a weekend. The cupcakes I made were moist, light, chocolate-y, and there is no way you would ever know that there is no wheat flour in them! The instructions are easy to follow, and if you are used to baking at all, it's a piece of cake! My boyfriend didn't want to eat this until I showed him the ingredients list, but he loved it!
- Terri Fowler
Nobody Knew These Were Paleo!
I served these muffins at a recent gathering and the guests ate them in no time. Nobody would believe these were paleo until I dug out the box to show them. I have made other chocolate muffins where the cocoa was overbearing. These muffins have just the right amount and the texture is perfect!
I was very impressed with this mix, and wish that Thrive Market had some of Simple Mills' other offerings--pizza crust, cookies, etc. The recipe called for oil, I used coconut oil and it was fantastic.
Nice, rich chocolate flavor. Great for dessert or special treats. Kid approved!
I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Yummy and very moist. Hubby said he would've known they were paleo if I hadn't told him. I used the muffin instructions and add my own non-paleo frosting for our daughter. Neufchâtel cheese, coco powder and vanilla.
My daughter and I baked this together as a cake and added about 1/4 cup coconut nectar. We don't always eat gluten free and my daughter especially scrutinizes gluten free goodies, but we both loved this! I am hypoglycemic, so this is a great, low-glycemic, treat for me. As a cake, it is still fairly heavy. I would use this method for muffins as well.
Perfect balance of ingredients
I substituted 1 Tbsp flax and 3 Tbsp water for the eggs. It came out perfect! This is a must try item. It was nice to actually have a birthday cake that was delicious and I could eat.
The Best Cupcakes
Amazing ingredients...amazing taste...all around amazing. Super moist, chocolate-y, and really easy to make. JUST AMAZING!!!
The best paleo muffin mix.
These are simply amazing. I have made them over and over and people never guess they are Paleo. You can add in so many mix-ins, like chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, etc. I love Simple Mills and am thrilled that they are available on Thrive.
