About this recipe: These muffins are wholesomely good. The apple sauce cuts down on the amount of fat in these muffins. They are also made with wholemeal flour. Desiccated coconut and chocolate chips are studded throughout these soft, moist and incredibly tender muffins. Enjoy for breakfast, brunch, dessert, afternoon tea or elevenses.
i have to say i'm disappointed. the muffins are quite moist and light, but also flavourless. i added nutmeg, vanilla and allspice. if i make again, i'll use about half the oil and add a lot more spice. the coconut appears to add only texture, not flavour. - 08 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this recipe is pretty good. the muffin is moist, looks beautiful, and tastes good. What makes it good are the chocolate chips. Without them, the recipe is quite boring. I used regular sugar (dont have raw sugar in my town), and regular coconut (organic is not moist). Yes I will make these again, but maybe I will experiment with adding cinnamon or maybe more chocolate chips. - 10 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
