I made these with pumpkin and they turned out great. Not too sweet or cakey, which is how I like my muffins for breakfast. The only changes I made was substituting one of the cups of flour for whole wheat flour and used pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice for the spices. I DID NOT leave out the crystalized ginger! That stuff is great.
This recipe makes for a different kind of pumpkin muffin. I used 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour and replaced 2/3 of the oil with applesauce. Also, I increased the cinnamon to 3/4 tsp. This recipe will definitely be made again.
nothing more to say..because the others said it all..fantastic muffins..made them just as another had..fat free because wife is on weight watchers..and they turned out super..Thanks
Oh my, these were FANTASTIC. I made them SUGAR-FREE by replacing the sugar with the same amount of splenda, and substituted the all-purpose flour with 100% Canadian WHOLE WHEAT. To compensate, I upped the baking powder to 3 tsp and doubled the baking soda and salt. Can't wait to serve sweet potatoes again, just so I can make these muffins!!
This was great! Everyone raved and what a great way to sneak veggies into young children. We added dried cranberries and increased the spices just a touch -- very yummy!
Excellent muffins! Really, not much else to say that Barb Gertz didn't say. Just another heartfelt endorsement. The crystallized ginger is a must; without it, more spices and possibly more sugar would be necessary to make the muffins tastier.
Wonderful-A nice change from pie. I brought them to work for a pre-holiday celebration and they were gobbled up quickly.
Delicious muffins, love the crystallized ginger, gives them such a good taste. I chopped the ginger in the mini chopper. Used paper muffin cups for easy clean up. Mixed the wet ingredients together using my hand blender,(used a large sweet potato baked in the microwave,mashed,& cooled before adding) then made the recipe as stated. VERY good in instructions, Kree. DH loves these. Will be making them again & again, thank you for the recipe Kree.
