"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)"

"I actually really love these muffins. I've made them three times now! The first time I made them the batter was super runny but I had followed the directions completely and they turned out great. The second I tried only adding the wet ingredients "until moistened" and it was a disaster.

My best result came from adding the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients, instead of the other way around!
The batter is sticky, so watch out!! But they muffins do have a delightful, buttery taste that my roommates and I all enjoy!"

"These are easy to make and my kids love them. Chocolate chip is not my favorite, but these are light, fluffy, and chocolatey! A great recipe for kids to make on their own, too."

"First of all, it really bugs me when people lower the ratings based on their alterations to the recipe.

So I followed this recipe exactly as it reads. It has a fantastic biscuit flavor. I sent a batch to work with my husband!
My advice, try the recipe first then alter as needed. :)"
