"Uhh let's just say I thought I accidentally made cookies and baked them in a muffin pan. Super weird crunchy thick dry chunks were what came out of my oven. Love muffins but don't love that I am now outta chocolate chips & can't make a different kind. **insert tear** Try a different recipe. Literally any other recipe ever. <3"

"I'm new at cooking and I decided to bake these brownies for my boyfriend as a treat when he got home from work. I actually halved the recipe because I only had a 6 muffin tin. The muffins were very tasty, but I had to add a little bit of milk and egg to the mixture because it was too dry. I also recommend only baking them for 15-16 minutes because I baked them for 19 and they were a bit more crispy than I would have liked. Overall, they were good and I look forward to seeing what my boyfriend thinks."

"Perfect chocolate chip muffin! Not to be confused with a chocolate chip cup cake, this is not cake like at all. Batter works up like a sticky bread dough. Muffins are not over sweet, letting the chocolate chips do the work. Yummy, kids ate fast as I could get out of oven. Will be making often for quick warm breakfast this season.Thanks for sharing recipe!"

"Great basic recipe..I used melted coconut oil for the oil,2/3 cup, then added 1/4 cup water with 1/2 cup Benefiber and a tsp of vanilla. I used regular sized milk chocolate chips. It took 4 more minutes to cook but turned out delicious! A bit fluffier than the original recipe which I had tried once."

"this is the worst muffin recipe i've ever tried. way way too dry. the batter consistency is more like a biscuit than a muffin. had to add a little milk and an extra egg to fix it. came out of the oven looking and tasting like a biscuit. just awful."

"Amazing!!! Both my girls gobbled them up. I did add a little more milk bc the batter seemed pretty dry and I added about a tablespoon of vanilla. They are light and fluffy and will make a perfect, quick,morning breakfast. (I made mini muffins and it made 40)"
