"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!"

"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!"

"I always make every muffin recipe "healthy". For this recipe I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 white flour, chia seeds (about 1/2 cup), flax seed (about 1/2 cup), substituted cold pressed coconut oil (can buy at Costco- softened to the point of almost melted), and increased the milk to the point that the batter was thick but workable. These muffins turned out great. I tried the recipe in the original form as well and these were way better. My kids are picky and they can't eat these fast enough.
