These cocoa muffins, made with flour, sugar, cocoa, eggs, oil, and vanilla, are moist and have a not-too-sweet and in intense cocoa flavor. For those with more restrained chocolate cravings.
These cocoa muffins are only slightly sweet and have an adult-like cocoa flavor rather than an overtly fudgy chocolate smack. Between their restrained chocolatiness and the fact that we call them muffins rather than cupcakes, it’s really quite easy to convince yourself they’re healthy.–Renee Schettler Rossi

I had a chocolate craving and found this cocoa muffins recipe and I will definitely be making them again. They’re moist, chocolatey, and delicious. And they’re not overly sweet.
I’d never have thought to put a pat of butter on a warm chocolate muffin, but I did as the recipe suggested and it was delicious. I also like that these freeze well. Freezing them is great for portion control, especially since my hubby and son aren’t big chocolate eaters and I don’t feel I have to eat up a whole bunch before they go bad. I can eat one, save one for the next day, and freeze the rest for later.
This is a great recipe for little ones to help make because the muffins mix together in no time. I like them because they’re not very sweet.
I also think these would be good as mini muffins by reducing the baking time to about 10 minutes.
