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.
These were wonderful! My kids devoured them! Very yummy! I used oat bran and extra dark cocoa powder, as mikekey had. Thank you for a terrific recipe!
I love chocolate and raspberry together, and these delivered! I used raspberry non-fat, no sugar yogurt, and no-sugar added preserves. I also used oat bran and the extra-dark cocoa powder. Turned out moist and flavorful!
Just fabulous!! I used half oat flour/half whole wheat flour, wheat bran & fat free yogurt. I also used sugar free strawberry preserves. They baked up so nice & yummy with that great sweet center. Guilt free, too! Thanks so much for sharing; it's a keeper.
4 stars! I used steel cut oat flour and wheat germ along with the regular flour. I also added 2 tsps baking soda because of the extra flour and a little more milk. I had to melt my honey, whitehoneycomb,This made a few more muffins. I like the idea of no added fats and I will try rasberry yogurt next time. Very easy to make. Thanks!
I thought this was really tasty. As a Weight Watcher, I was pleased with the big muffin bang for my calorie buck. My husband even enjoyed them (NOT a WW!) Thanks so much for the recipe.
These muffins were healthy and edible enough but they lack the wow factor. I think it would be a better recipe with out the chocolate flavour which clashed with the raspberry to our taste. I am going to try it again without the cocoa just to see.
