When I first took a bite of one of these hot muffins, the first word out of my mouth was "WoW." I didn't follow the recipe exactly b/c I didn't have everything, changed things here and there, doubled the recipe AND I took the advice of others.
//Here are some things that I changed:
/**decreased oil to two cups (in a single recipe, it would have been reduced from 1 1/2 cups to 1 cup [would have preferred to use part applesauce but was out])**
/**used whole wheat flour and added wheat gluten**
/**The cinnamon was freshly ground**
/**added 1/2 a teaspoon of ground cloves [I might have added more except it was my first time and I didn't want to botch a doubled recipe}**
/ **Instead of semisweet chocolate chips, Guittard [brandname] Choc-Au-Lait (white chips)were used**
TIP: Keep an eye on muffins after 14-16 minutes -they MAY BE overcooked or slightly burned at around 18 minutes.
