I cut this recipe in half. I wanted to make this recipe a little lighter, so I used half the amount of oil called for in this recipe and substituted organic unsweetened applesauce. I also cut the sugar in half. When I cut this recipe in half, the recipe asked for 1 1/2 eggs, so instead of using half of an egg, I just added two extra tablespoons of organic unsweetened applesauce. The recipe didn't specify which kind of unsweetened chocolate to use so I used mini-chocolate chips that I had on hand. I was able to get 12 muffins out of on recipe--I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes. These muffins turned out dense and moist. We all really liked these muffins, though I'd like to play with the recipe a little next time. Maybe up the spices to taste, add a little vanilla and use melted butter instead of vegetable oil. I think this recipe would be good with blueberries or even raisins instead of chocolate chips, too. That's really personal choice, not reflective of the recipe.
