I made this for breakfast the other day. My entire family loved them. I made them as written except, I forgot to add the butter(no one noticed that it was missing) to the muffin itself and I added milk chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe.

These were delicious!! I was looking for something new to make for breakfast and found this recipe! I have a bad (really....a good habit actually) of reworking the recipes to make them lower fat and lower cholesterol, more fiber, etc. So here are my changes. I used all whole wheat four, replaced the egg with ground flax, replaced the butter with a combo of pureed pumpkin and fat free greek yogurt, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and just brushed melted butter on the top instead of dipping it....but my whole family loved them and my daughter wants me to make more to put in her lunches.....I definitely will be making these again soon! Thanks for a great recipe! And as one reviewer said....they do taste like a churro....a little denser the way I made them but really good flavor!
