My first attempt of a muffin recipe. I got it from Allrecipes.com, one of my favorite cooking websites. The recipe calls for nuts but I didn't have any when I baked it, didn't miss it though. This turned out not very chocolatey but the chocolate chips somehow compensated for the lack of sweetness. I promised myself to do it again and modify the recipe a little, but I was too busy trying out new recipes that I didn't have the time. ;o)
