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.

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.
