Guess what? I forgot to add sugar in my bakes! I only realized my mistake when I baked them in my oven. But I am glad that I did add extra chocolate chips into the muffins, so the muffins are not totally bitter. In fact, I prefer them without sugar since I do not have a sweet tooth. You can always drizzle some chocolate sauce over the muffins & ate with a scoop of ice cream if you fancy *^_^*

Chocolate lovers will definitely love this muffin
