      First my changes/substitutions: I used Splenda Sugar Blend, unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil and orange extract instead of vanilla extract. The end result was DELICIOUS. The muffins were fluffy and moist and the combination of orange and chocolate was perfect. I got 15 muffins instead of 12 which is a bonus. :) I took some over to my in-laws and they thought the muffins were very good too. I stored them in the refrigerator, then when I was in the mood for a muffin, I would pop it into the microwave for 10-15 seconds and it tasted like it just came out of the oven. Made for June 2013 Aus/NZ Swap.

      Photo may be seen here, in the Savor gallery: First I really love that this recipe isn't too sweet. The orange flavor is less pronounced than I expected and I suspect that any more sweetness would really overpower the delicate orange. The muffins baked up high, light and fluffy. Even though I used 1/2 a cup of dark chocolate chips that flavor was still the strongest in the muffin (not that thats a bad thing at all!). I should say that I used Splenda and a couple of tablespoons less oil.

      I didn't have any oranges so, I used tangerine zest instead. Good muffins!
