    I put them in for a little more than 20 minutes, a few came out raw. Overall, the one’s that were baked, were delicious! Will do this recipe again~!

      I hate that they turned raw. :( I had to put an oven thermometer in our oven because it wasn’t heating correctly. Maybe that could be the issue? You could also try rotating the muffin pan halfway through cooking…sometimes ovens have cooler spots. I am happy that the ones that were not raw you still enjoyed. :)
