Gluten-free Choc Chip Cupcakes

Quick and easy, you can be eating these in under an hour. Not everyone likes gram flour in their GF mix though, so try substituting your favourite commercial flour blend. The batter should be very thick, so that the choc chips don't  sink, but it should not be dry and crumbly.
