This recipe was born of an accident! Try to keep from eating the batter before you put it in the oven :)

These are a dense muffin but it has tons of flavor. I think my favorite background flavor is the cinnamon blended with the chocolate. I baked them in three different types of muffin pans (stainless without liners, stainless with liners and then silicone muffin holders) and all three baked perfectly in 20 minutes. I did reduce the temp to 325 due to all being darker in color. These are great with a morning mug of coffee and will be great with my evening one too! ;) Thanks for sharing.
