Top Review by French Fried Texan

I was craving chocolate and these really hit the spot. I halved the recipe which yielded 4 nice sized muffins and just used 1 whole egg, applesauce in place of the margarine, fat free yogurt in place of the sour cream and sugar substitute for the sugar. I put 1 chopped pecan in one of the muffins which I think I'll just add in next time. Mine had the texture of muffins, i.e. cakey which I really liked. This could have been because of my changes though. I will definitely try as written for company though! Thanks for the great lowfat snack recipe! :)
