I need to write up my recipe correctly as I play with it a little each time, and I vary it, sometimes use lemon flavoring, or banana flavoring, or like I said, last time used 4 TB of cocoa and malt sweetened carob chips. The cocoa was bitter and I didn't add more stevia so they weren't as sweet as they should be. I like bitter chocolate anyway, so I didn't mind it but I need to do it once more before I send you the recipe. It's good that you're tolerating soy because I use tofu blended with water in place of the milk the original recipe called for since I'm allergic to dairy.
I just started using Saco cocoa, but prior had used Hershey's. I'll try the Saco in the next muffins and see what I think.
A few treats that have saved me...raw pumpkin seeds roasted in the oven, just put some in a glass pie pan, add a little olive oil, stir til all are covered, bake at 350 for about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally (length of time depends on how many you put in pan) or until a golden brown and are crisp to eat. Spread out on a papertowel and lightly season, can use salt, salt and a little garlic or onion powder, even a light sprinkle of stevia and cinnamon. (They're a great high protein/low carb snack, especially good for internal cleansing and good for men's prostate.)...A spoonful of almond butter sprinkled with a few malt sweetened carob chips (just started this one and tolerating the almond ok)mmmmmmmm...One cup of organic puffed wheat cereal with a half cup soy silk, sprinkled with a little stevia...here's a simple one, peppermint tea with stevia, it's so refreshing as sun tea and helps the sweet craving. Also have a recipe for pumpkin custard, but I'll have to write that one up properly, too.
I'll post the recipe on the new forum as soon as I have it officially written.
