    A very straightforward recipe. I added chopped fresh strawberries to one batch and chocolate pieces to another. They were gone in no time! By the way, previous comment is nonsense. Moistened IS in the Samsung dictionary and the following is an excerpt from the Oxford English Dictionary: Definition of moisten Verb [with object]wet slightly: she moistened her lips with the tip of her tongue[no object] (of the eyes) fill with tears: her eyes moistened I wish these 'clever' people would establish their facts! Thanks for a great recipe.  -  26 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I made these with my 2 1/2 year old, although I am not too bad at cooking I always find baking tricky as I hate having to stick to specific measurements and amounts. These muffins were simple and easy to make. We added 1 banana and half a packet of chocolate chips (all that was left in the cupboard). Ours did turn out a bit flat as my daughter got a bit carried with the stirring but they still tasted great. Perfect with a cup of coffee in the afternoon or for on the go breakfast for rushed mornings. I would have added a photo of them but can't figure out how to.  -  20 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Made it more kid friendly. just add what the kids love some chocolate powder and some chocolate drops and put in mini muffin cup cases and keep an eye on them and you make loads of little muffins that last longer than the big one and kids don't start to eat them and then give up  -  21 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
