I had really high hopes for the recipe from the other reviews. I was kind of disappointed. I was hoping for something that tastes like a VitaTop Muffin. This doesn't. This was tasty, but it does taste healthy. It has a great texture for being healthy, though. It feels like you're eating a not-too-sweet, slighlty gritty chocolate cup cake. I would make this again.
These are really good! They tasted great warm out of the oven - nice chocolate flavor, good texture and healthy too. What's not to love? Thanks for posting!
Oh my, are these good!! I subbed milk + lemon juice for the buttermilk and crushed All-Bran (instead of the Fiber One) in my Magic Bullet. We've tried a few double chocolate muffin recipes (both "healthy" and non) and all (DH and 3 DDs aged 9, 5, & 2) agreed these are the best! Thanks!! UPDATE: Instead of crushing the All-Bran, I left it to soak in the milk/lemon juice mixture for 10 minutes or so. Also tried pouring the mix into a loaf pan and baked at the same temp for about 45 minutes. Made a superb loaf which folks think is "cake" (heeheehee!). Will be using this recipe a lot, I can see, since they don't last long in my house...
These are excellent! The same recipe in on the Betty Crocker website also. I did not expect these to taste so yummy! But they are. They could pass for chocolate cupcakes they are so good!
Super good. I used some milk with lemon and some yogurt, cut back a bit on the sugar and ioil and added some applesauce, got down to 155 calories and 5 grams of fiber of happiness. NO ONE wuld know these are so healthy. I too sent the Fiber One first through the food processor, then the mortar and pestle and I think that is the trick, you want dust. I was really pleasantly surprised with this one which will become a new solution for breakfast or cupcakes. Made for a cook a thon for Kelbel.
Kelbel, you've got a winner with this recipe! No one here guessed that Mom's "twigs and sticks" cereal was in each muffin. I was sure to crush the cereal thoroughly to keep its identity concealed! I made my own buttermilk (skim + 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice) and also cut down the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. Each bite was moist and full of chocolately goodness (plus fiber!). Great snack, dessert or anytime treat. Thanks so much for sharing this. MERP'd for Kelbel Cook-a-Thon.
