I just made this recipe today and it was WONDERFUL! Even my kids and husband, who arent vegan, loved these. Hope you all enjoy.

Not bad for a no-fat, vegan muffin (my first vegan baked good btw!) The texture is quite moist and they're very chocolatey. They did have a distinctive "healthy" taste to them, which is ok, as I wasn't expecting a betty crocker bisquick chocolate muffin here.
