    I made zucchini bread with it, and you can't even tell its made with whole wheat flour. Not spongey like some low calorie breads, and very chocolately! - 7/24/10

    I am so glad you like it! I am making a batch today, as I am working on losing my baby weight for the 5th time! (last baby for sure!)

    I thought these were really good. I don't know if it's because there is no oil, but when using cupcake papers the muffin stuck to the papers and I lost a lot of the muffin trying to separate them. I guess that just means you eat less :) I made both muffins and a loaf, so I liked the loaf better - 7/15/12

    Yummy! And my kids are eating zucchini! I did make a few adjustments, I used vanilla Greek yogurt and cut the sugar to 1/2c. of raw sugar. I also added some ground flax and a bit of water. They turned out great...they are big and filling at 136 calories. Thanks!! - 8/6/11

    I enjoyed these and made them according to recipe (excepting 2 eggs for the 4 egg white) They are moist and chocolate-y. They could be a tad sweeter for my taste. THanks for the recipe! - 8/8/13

    I used Greek Yogurt, plain and added a sprinkle of chopped walnuts to the top. I made mine a little smaller and got 18 muffins. As for the sticking to the wrapper, I used foil muffin liners. - 7/31/13

    These were pretty good but - I only put 1/2 cup of sugar (+ 2 tbs)....and it really did need that extra sweetness. Fortunately I put milk chocolate chips on top so that did help. They are a nice texture. Next time, I'm adding coconut milk and topping them with coconut and chips. Should help. - 8/24/11

    I modified this when I made it today and loved the results! (Not enough egg whites, so used some whole eggs and I also used regular chocolate chips.) - 1/29/14

    I was so impressed by all the comments, so I was a tiny bit disappointed when they came out tasting quite salty. I followed the recipe to the letter. Other than that they were quite delicious. Next time I will leave out the salt. - 8/31/13

    Instead of wheat I used oatmeal ground into flour consistency. They came out super moist. I do think Thry need a little more sweetness so I will add honey or agave next time. I also used greek yogurt. Delish! - 7/13/13

    I just made these. They're pretty good, especially considering that they're made only with whole wheat flour. I mixed 1/2 cup regular-sized chocolate chips into the batter, and I'm glad that I did. They would be quite bland without the chocolate chips. - 8/11/12

    This is my new favorite chocolate dessert...you don't feel deprived of any chocolate, and the muffins are HUGE! I am glad I doubled the recipe when I made these...they won't last long! I did use sugar instead of splenda as someone else pointed out, and might have put a few more morsels in..... :) - 1/3/12

    The nutritional information is very misleading. The recipe calls for sugar, but the nutritional information is calculated using zero calorie splenda. I made it with sugar, and no chocolate chips, and it's roughly the same calories. But the muffins aren't great. - 8/30/11

    This made 18 cupcake size muffins. The smaller size muffins were done in 10 minutes in my oven. I used honey instead of sugar. Delicious! - 8/3/11

    Made these today and sorry to say did not like them :( I found they did not have much flavor to them. The chocolate flavor was not very strong despite all the cocoa powder. If I try these again I will incorporate the chips in the batter and see if that helps some. Nice try though. - 7/30/11

    Fantastic! I didn't have plain fat-free yogurt so I used Yoplait white chocolate-strawberry, the only thing I had on hand. So good! Will make again using Okios Chocolate Greek Yogurt and maybe try other flavors,too. Thanks for a great recipe. - 7/16/11

    Eating one of these warm out of the oven as I type this. Fabulous! Very moist and chocolaty. I do taste the whole wheat, but it'snot overpowering! I added walnuts because a muffin without nuts just isn't right somehow. - 9/11/10

  • Excellent! I added 3/4 cup of sunflower seeds which is 1 tablespoon per muffin. It does add fat, but it is healthy fat. I also mixed the choco chips into the muffin batter. I brought them to work and got rave reviews. I peeled & seeded the zucchini before fine shredding them. - 9/13/13
