"I’m a TOH Volunteer Field Editor and enjoy testing new recipes for my family to try. I chose this one today because I was looking for a quick easy muffin recipe. This one was so quick to throw together. I did add a tsp of vanilla based on reviews. It was a very thick batter and I only got 10 muffins instead of 12. I did sprinkle a few of them with a chocolate truffle topping I made to add some variety. I had one warm from the oven and it was fantastic! If you’re needing a basic recipe that will use things you have in the cupboard- this is it!"

"Ugh! These are terrible! Didn't brown when baking. The dough was dense with no taste. Threw them all away."

"These muffins are so bland. While I was baking I realized that there was not even vanilla extract in the recipe so I added some and it made them a little better, but they were still barely edible. When they came out of the oven I added a salted caramel drizzle and it made them better still. I would not recommend this recipe at all."

"bland. The chocolate chips are the only thing preventing these "muffins" from tasting like newspaper."

"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."
