These were not nearly sweet enough for me. Also, the texture was interesting--very different from the light and springy muffins that I'm used to. Good idea though.
Personally I didn't really like the cinnamon/chocolate center. I also found that I had quite a lot (about half) of the cinnamon/chocolate mix left over which was a bit wasteful. Interesting idea, just didn't work for me.
Absolutely beautiful!! I also added 1 1/2 TBS cocoa just for that added chocolate kick. I made a double batch and still have some cinnamon mix left!! Guess i'll have to make some more!! :)
These were delicious! Both my kids loved them. I subbed 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup quick oats for the all-purpose flour since I was out of all-purpose. I added some sweetened cocoa to the cinnamon mixture. I made mini muffins and got 18. I had a lot of the cinnamon mixture left over. Guess I'll have to make more! ;-)
I changed a few things: -added the chocolate chips (my interpretation of "chocolate pieces") directly to the batter... probably used about a cup -added a little vanilla to the batter, about 2 teaspoons -used low-fat butter spread instead of butter because I'm out of butter at the moment The muffins turned out great, even without the butter! Everyone in my house liked them, and I'll definitely be making them again.
i added cocoa and used mini chocolate chips- i wasn't sure if chocolate pieces meant sprinkles or chips. they were so yummy and quite a treat for my boys. i had about half of the brown sugar mixture left over.
