    Chris from Kansas's Note:

    This is a great recipe for lower-fat chocolate chip muffins. The texture and flavor is just right. The recipe is from a book called Dr. Cookie.

      These are quite tasty! I had to cook them for about 18-20 minutes rather than the 15 minutes. They were light and fluffy, just the way I like my muffins.

      wow are these good (could be because i haven't had chocolate in about 8 months tho!) i made some subs such as whole wheat flour, applesauce in place of butter, light soy milk rather than milk, splenda, and egg substitute. cut the calories down to 95 per muffin! thanks for posting.
