“I was originally interested in making a chocolate nut bread from Very Best Baking but decided I needed something more chocolaty and with more spices. So I decided to merge that recipe with another muffin recipe I use that calls for cinnamon and nutmeg. I wanted it to look chocolaty too though so I also added cocoa powder. I do want to add that this recipe is not very sweet. It is just right. You can use just all purpose flour if desired. This recipe will make 48 regular sized muffins or 24 Texas sized muffins. You can also freeze some for later.”
