Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This WAY too high in sugar. Low fat alone is not helpful for most people, especially Diabetics!
Again, I implore SP to start posting sugar on the first page of the recipe. It IS listed on Nutrition on all packages in stores.

I only used a 1/2 cup regular brown sugar, 1 whole egg, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla. I baked them for 18 minutes. Delicious! My modifications made 12 muffins at 148 calories a piece. Submitted by:

Very good. I used quick oats since I didn't have rolled on hand. I just let them soak for 15 min. I liked the texture better with the quick oats too. No big oats to chew on and still just as healthy. I also used semi sweet chocolate chips cuz it's all I had on hand and 1/2 cup real brown sugar. Submitted by:

This recipe is a keeper! I used fat free Greek yogurt instead of applesauce to increase the protein. I made 18 muffins from this recipe. Submitted by:

what if you dont want to eat an artificial sugar? I am trying to cut out all artificial foods from my diet...what can people like me do? Submitted by:

I use the same recipe except I use .5 cup sugar. I use to bring them regularly to work when I worked at a hospital and EVERYONE went crazy for them! They freeze very well too if you wrap them thoroughly in Saran Wrap before placing in freezer bags. Submitted by:

These are great! With these modifications they're 148 cal each. Substitute: unsweetened almond milk; 1/3c regular brown sugar; 1 whole egg; 1/2 c chocolate chips. Submitted by:

I took readers' advice and put the oats through the blender first, eliminating the long milk soak. I simply added the cup of skim milk with the other wet ingredients. Substituted pureed canned white beans in equal amounts for the applesauce. Used 1/2 c sugar and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Big hit! Submitted by:

These are GREAT! My version: 1/2 brown sugar & 6 Tbs fat free coca mix. I bought dark chocolate chips (30 mini chips were only 70 calories). I added the chips once the batter was in the cupcake holder (only 4 per cupcake). Got my calorie count to 88. Complaint: sticks to wrapper. need to freeze & MW Submitted by:

OUTSTANDING. This doesn't taste like any "diet" muffin. Tastes better than most full fat/sugar muffins. Wow. Submitted by:

Definitely use the Splenda brown sugar and the full 6 tbps of cocoa powder! Otherwise they're not quite sweet and chocolatey enough. Submitted by:

WARNING: These are so good you may over-induldge (I did) These are AWESOME!
I didn't have Splenda brown sugar, so I used regular. Also, I chopped up my oats in the Magic Bullet so I wouldn't have big oak flakes, then I only soaked them for about 30 - 35 minutes. Done after 14 min in oven.

Low fat, but not low carb. Which is fine, but I had searched "low carb." Submitted by:

Better than chocolate cake! I made these using quick oats, 2% milk, 1/2 C real brown sugar, 1 egg, and only 2/3 C mini chocolate chips. I divided the batter over 15 muffins instead of 12. My version had 134 calories per muffin. Submitted by:

I used 1/2 c brown sugar, and 1/2 c. chocolate chips too... very tasty! I can't stop my 3 year old from sneaking more... good thing I made mini muffins! Submitted by:

Used the 1/2 c. real brown sugar suggestion from one reviewer, used 1 % milk, and added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Made 20 muffins out of the mixture. Entered in another nutritional counter site, and got 95 cal per muffin. Pretty good! Submitted by:

Very good flavor and kept me full for longer. Made two substitutions... 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of Splenda and 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chip minis and one whole egg. Changes were 119 cal, 3.7g fat, 20.5 carb, and 4.2g protein. Submitted by:

These are great! I added 1 mashed banana, only 1/2 cup regular brown sugar, 2 Tblsp ground flax and 1 tsp. vanilla and used the dark cocoa powder. I also only baked them for about 18 minutes. I'll be making these again! Submitted by:

I had been looking for a recipe to substitute for a very unhealthy (trans fat!) muffin that I loved and this one is even better! I've made it twice already and I'm going to be making it often from now on. Submitted by:

Amazing! I took some of the others advice and used 1/2 c real brown sugar, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1 egg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla and they came out delicious! Definitely for dark chocolate lovers. My husband said they were ok but he only likes milk chocolate - I can't stop eating them! Submitted by:

This is great! Thank you for the Splenda instead of sugar; not only do we need to lose weight, my husband is diabetic so I'm always looking for recipes he can enjoy, too. Submitted by:

These sound good. I will substitute Lakanto for the sugar (a no-calorie sweetener made from Stevia and erythritol) and use a whole egg. These 2 changes probably won't raise the calories much more than the original recipe. Submitted by:
