      Very good. These have a rich, brownie cuplike-like taste & texture and a very good flavor. Most of the lentils disappeared into the batter, creating a very moist cupcake/muffin and they looked very nice when dusted with the powdered sugar - although I could easily see these iced with a chocolate frosting. I used dried lentils, following the instructions in step 1 and found that while my lentils were tender after the 20 minutes, they needed far longer time to get soft enough to mash. Next time, I would cook them longer still and puree them in a blender before adding to the muffins.

      I'd give these more stars if i could! One of the best muffins I've ever had. I replaced the oil with vanilla yogurt and just chopped up leftover dark chocolate Valentines day hearts for the chips. Used regular dried lentils and added a bit extra cocoa. I just love them! They remind me of brownies. And the Cinnamon really gives them a flavor all their own. Thanks for the recipe!

      Another great way to use lentils without the "this is good for you" flavour :). Added an extra tablespoon of cocoa powder and sprinkled a few extra choc chips on top. The lentils really give the muffins a chewy top and soft middle... mmm. I sometimes change the cinnamon for 1 tsp instant coffee powder.
