I was in search for some chocolate muffins and had the hardest time trying to find any! I did come across this recipe on allrecipe.com and thought I would bring it over here! I've only made them once for my husband to take to work...they were all gone by lunch! Let me know how you like and if you have an alterations!

My kids and I loved these. I made as posted except I left out the nuts. I think miniature chocolate chips would be better than the large ones as it would spread out the chocolate goodness. Another change I may make in the future is to decrease the amount of sugar to 1 cup; they are a tad sweet though that is really not a huge problem. My son already asked if we could make these again. Thanks for posting.
No. just skip it. Strange texture. Not good flavor. And using high quality ingredients is not my problem. I should have read reviews. My kids ate them because they think they are chocolate cupcakes. They are not tasty.
This recipe has some weird things- mixing the sugar in with the dry ingredients for example, and milk, but very little fat or oil; but I thought I would give it a try- should've listened to my gut- these just don't have the right texture for muffins, they are gritty and hard, just not very good. The kids ate them because they had chocolate chips in them, but my husband gave them a big thumbs down!
