      OUTSTANDING! Loved the chocolate & raspberry combo, not to mention the neat surprise! I did take another reviewer's suggestion & used 1/2 cup of cocoa, but then I REALLY LIKE CHOCOLATE! Thanks for sharing a real keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Went to the Market cooking game]

      I agree with a previous reviewer that these are WW worthy if using a SF type jam. I did on two (as that's all I had) and the rest I used regular Smucker's Brand Raspberry Jam. These muffins are plenty dense as a good bran muffin should. I love the choco-flavor added for my choco-fix. This recipe is easily adaptable as you could omit the chocolate if not a lover of choco-raspberry. (or any flavor). I give this 5 stars!!! Made for MarketTag~

      Cool...these are like chocolate bran muffins! The texture was great, heavy, moist and fluffy. I would have liked to have a bit more of a chocolate flavour. After eating one my dad commented that there must be a lot of molasses in here to make them so dark. Next time I think i would increase the cocoa to 1/2 cup. The raspberry surprise in the centre was great! Overall we really enjoyed these. Thanks! Reviewed during ZWT 4.
