This recipe was fantastic for someone who wanted to dabble with whole wheat flour, but was nervous about creating chocolatey moon rocks : ) The recipe was spot on, easy to follow, and was exactly what I was looking for. The only changes I made were as follows... I cut the sugar in 1/2 and used 1/4 Stevia in the Raw to supplement. I added a cup of chopped walnuts for extra protein. I added 1/4 cup of skim milk because of adding the walnuts. I cut the oil in 1/2 and used applesauce to supplement the rest. And finally, I cut the oven baking time by 2 minutes (but left the muffins in the tin for an extra 1-2 minutes to finish cooking through. I really wanted a super moist, "oh this must be really bad for me" (wink, wink) kind of treat. Kudos to the author of this recipe! Very easy to follow and taking away my fear of using whole wheat flour. : )
These were a hit! Replaced 3 cups chocolate with 1 cup chocolate and 2 cups fresh raspberries. Great, moist texture, rich flavour. Thanks, Jasmine.
My kids loved these muffins! These are not sweet, and the chocolate flavor is on the mild side. Definitely a muffin, not a cupcake! Very tender and moist crumb. Excellent warm from the oven. I quartered the recipe, and that yielded a baker's dozen (13)!
I quartered this recipe, so I only made 1 dozen. I omitted the spices, and they were delicious. Exactly what I was looking for. Not too sweet but chocolatey. I will definitely make these again.
Will certainly make again! Substituted sucanat for the granulated sugar. Next time I'll try with 100% whole wheat flour. Thanks for the recipe!
These are wonderful!! Not so rich like a cupcake but moist and tender with plenty of chocolaty goodness. They were a hit for kids and adults alike and I plan on making many more! Thanks for a great recipe!
Delicious muffins! I used whole wheat flour for all the flour in this recipe and subbed the orange extract for the vanilla. I also stirred in almonds and coconut into half of the batter. These were great!
These were delicious without the guilt. I used white chocolate morsels and added chopped nuts.
Great muffin recipe! My daughter and I have been making our own muffins throughout the week since we do not live close enough to a Wholefoods market and it is next to impossible to find organic muffins elsewhere! We make 2-3 batches each week and try to make a different one each time. We chose this one today because we were out of butter and I wanted to try one that had no rating yet. I halved the recipe and used organic whole wheat flour for all the flour called for. Subbed sugar in the raw for the sugar; those were the only to substitutions. The recipe directions were very well explained and the list of ingredients were easy. Used all organic ingredients right down to the unsweetened cocoa powder. I did, however, throw in some walnuts in the ones for me once the batter was in the tin. The texture is great; not too heavy but not spongy light. The flavor was terrific (my 4yr old daugther and I agreed) as it was not overly sweet but not lacking in flavor. We both decided we'd like these again so they will be made repeatedly. Thanks for sharing!
