This is my favorite muffin recipe by far. I have used vanilla or blueberry yogurt instead of plain and turned out fine each time. For the topping, I only use brown sugar and cinnamon for the topping, did not need the extra choc. chips. Very moist and tasty. Family loves them.
Yummy, moist, and a crisp top!
I used sour cream instead of yogurt, and didn't do the topping. Liked it without! I think the topping would make them too sweet.
I rated them already but the stars would not come on screen so I had to do it a second time. Worth doing it twice.
Very moist and great tasting. I did not do the topping. I put chocolate chips on top. My kids loved them !!
I doubled the recipe and made 12 jumbo muffins. 3/4 cup batter in each muffin cup was perfect. I did not use the topping. They are delicious. Very moist for a muffin. They still only took 25 minutes to bake even though they were jumbo sized.
