After reading other reviews, I started out by putting the oats in 1/2c milk to soak while working on the first section of the recipe. Due to inattention, I forgot to subtract this 1/2c milk from the later milk added, and this turned out to be a good mistake. The muffins were about the right dampness.
For the 1/2c oat-soaking, I used vanilla soy milk, then switched over to my roommate's regular milk.
My main issue with the muffins is they seem to suffer from some sort of flavor personality disorder with the cocoa/raisins.
Here is what I plan on doing next time:
- throwing a few handfuls of chocolate chips in with the raisins.
- soaking the oats in slightly more milk.
- substituting in some apple sauce, as recommended in another review.
I could see these being pretty successful chocolate-chocolate-chip-oatmeal muffins. I wouldn't bake them the same way next time.
