Baking muffins...they taste delicious, but they're still "wet" inside. Toothpick comes out clean, and they seem done...is this a cooking time

Baked at 425 for 5 min then turned down temp to 350 for additional 20 min. Still "shiny" around edges even though tooth pick comes out clean. Please help!
Wet ingredients: 3/4 c Greek yogurt, 1/3 c milk, 1/2 c coco oil, 2 eggs.
(Main) Dry ingredients: 1 3/4 c flour, 1/2 c coco sugar, 1 tsp bk soda, 1 tsp bk powder, 1 tsp salt

This can be caused by over mixing during the process mix till incorporated not over-mixed to runny texture.May also move up to 2 cups flour this should solve your problem

The batter was pretty thick-not runny at all...I tried not to over mix, but will try to add extra flour and make sure not to overmix at all!

are they rising as they should? and at what temp are you cooking them?

425 for 5 min, the lowering temp to 350 for 20 min. I would love them to rise a little more... It would be "prettier" But they are rising okay. :)

I didn't ask that at first , I was just checking to make sure. I believe everything should work out fine. To keep them from over-darkening you can always put a little foil over them...Good luck...:)
