A very delicious muffin. A chocoholics dream! I made it with chocolate chips though and only with 1/2 cup brown sugar (I did not add the 1/2 cup white sugar). I also added 1/2 cup white unsweetened yogurt, as the batter seemed so thick that I was afraid it would stay dry. The muffins were very moist and chocolatey! Will be making them again!
I had one muffin recipe tank tonight--I was a little cautious with this one. I was worried in particular about the amount of flour/oats in relation to the amount of liquids. I omitted the oats all together and only used one cup of flour. I didn't want them to be overkill sweet either so I cut both the white and brown sugars back to 1/4 cup. I made no other changes. Even cutting back the flour and omitting the oats, the batter was quite thick. I got eight muffins from one recipe and they were really small. They baked up okay but were on the dry side. I guess I'm 0/2 at this point. Darn it. I really wanted this one to work out. Guess I should have read the reviews before making this one.
These are the best muffins I have made yet! As a young new baker, I have been making weekly muffins, and I know I will be making these again! I cannot wait to share them with my family when they come into town!
I make muffins every Friday for my husband's office meeting. These were another hit! Very yummy!
These were average to below average. I followed recipe exactly. I had a group of college kids visiting for the weekend and I could barely get them to finish these muffins off. Sorry.
WAHH WAHH! I love peanut butter and chocolate, so I thought this might be a keeper in spite of some poor reviews. I was wrong. There are many things that I think need adjusting here. First of all, the amount of leavening ie. baking soda or powder is woefully inadequate. This resulted in a small and slightly hard textured "muffin". I should have been clued into the fact that the muffin batter was the texture of a cookie dough. Too dry. Flavor was decent, but the texture needs some work.
They are very easy to make and do taste moist. Great tasting peanut butter and chocolate taste.
I like these muffins a lot. I did not have quick-cooking oats, and I think this might have been a mistake - the oatmeal seems harder than it should be. But the muffins are still delicious, and I love the chocolate-peanut butter combo.
