Ours are in the oven right now! I can't believe I've waited so long to make them. I have heard about them for years. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I had a hard time mixing the butter into the liquid. (I normally would have mixed the egg and the butter together first.) I resorted to using an electric whisk. I will have to see how they turn out.
Matthew (age 4) had a blast helping.

Miriam, I had the same trouble with the butter. I tried it in the elec. mixer, but their was too much liquid. So I finally added the flour. How'd yours turn out?
So Cindy, fill us in on the secret of how you mix in the butter.

When I make these (I make them A LOT, thanks Cindy) I mix the brown sugar and butter till smooth, then add the egg and then the milk.

tamisly, wonderful to see you posting! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I miss you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I actually can't remember the last time I made these [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Please note: obviously Sixlets would NOT be an okay substitute for chocolate chips now that they have a "may contain" warning.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I meant to say the butter and sugar! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]
They came out [b]really[/b] good. I will definitely be making them a lot.
One thing that I think is really funny is that the consistency is very similar to some "fat free" muffins I used to buy from a cafe, back in the early 90's. Since these muffins are clearly [b]not[/b] fat free, I am wondering if I was duped about those other muffins! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Also, I thought it was funny when I read that Amy used raisins because her ds doesn't like chocolate. Guess what my dd said when she ate one? "They're good, but I think I would like them better if they had raisins instead of chocolate chips." [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] sometimes I could swear she is [b]not[/b] my daughter! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Thanks for the great recipe, Cindy. I know we will be making them a lot. Matthew takes after me and [b]loves[/b] chocolate. It must be all that chocolate I craved (and ate!) when I was pregnant with him. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]

California Mom, I counted, you had FOUR [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] 's!
This recipe has been here for ages, what took you so long?
And, as a chocolate lover, you may also want to look for the Chocolate Zucchini Loaf. I'm fairly sure that I posted it, but I posted it with permission of Cayley's Mom, whose recipe it was.

If anyone has tried these muffins using an egg substitute, please let me know how it went! I am finding some delicious sounding recipes on this post but we can't use eggs!! So if you happen to post one & know of a good way to sub the eggs that works for the recipe, please list it too....thanks from this mom to a PA and EA child [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I use 1 1/2 tablespoon of oil, teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 1/2 tablespoon of water for each egg. The recipe actually comes out quite moist.

DD (10) made these--substituted canola oil for butter; water for milk (about 7/8 cup); 1.5 T oil, 1 t baking powder and 1.5 T water for egg; omitted salt. We used Trader Joe's chocolate chips. Double recipe made 18 delicious muffins.
