How To Make Brownie Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a small sauce pan, carefully melt butter over a low heat. Stir in cocoa and chocolate chips and remove from heat as soon as chocolate is melted. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the egg, sugar and vanilla extract. Add butter/chocolate mixture, the flour mixture, and chopped pecans, stirring just until blended - no need to over mix.
In a well greased muffin tin (or paper muffin cups sprayed lightly with cooking spray), spoon in muffin batter - filling cups about 3/4 full.
Sprinkle each muffin with a few chocolate chips and a pinch of chopped nuts.
Bake 20 minutes or until done. The toothpick test works well here - insert a toothpick and if it comes out dry and free of batter, the muffins are done.
Remove pans from oven and let cool before serving.
The batter turns out to be a bit more dense than most other muffin batters. The consistency reminded me of making fudge. It think that's why these are so good. The flavor reminded me of fudge too!
One of the tastiest muffins I've made. A chocolate delight! Sometimes I'll add a teaspoon of orange zest to the batter too. It's a fun recipe to play with.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Checkers for this recipe.

Are these really moist or dense? I want it more of a brownie texture than a muffin.

Excellent source of chocolate... you can substitute and play around for less fat.

Very much like a brownie. Very good, although I thought the cinnamon made it taste a bit odd. Might be better with less or none.

These were very good... but not really a muffin, more a cake. Who cares! Chocolate rocks!

I made these muffins as mini-muffins for the kids. Instead of nuts I substituted semisweet mini chocolate chips. I baked the muffins for 15 minutes and it yielded 24 muffins. My kids can't get enough of these. Thanks for the recipe. I am looking forward to trying some of the other recipes on your web site.
