Yummy! I was eager to try this recipe because it sounded so healthy and delicious. I made a few changes... I didn't have ground ginger so I used some grated fresh (but only a tiny bit because I'm not crazy about it.) I skipped the cloves altogether because I hate them. I used about 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and 1/2 tsp. almond extract. I also skipped the orange zest and raisins because I don't really care for them and I used walnuts instead of pecans. I love that there are so many healthy things in these, you'd never know it by how great they are! I used the paper muffin cups for about half of my muffins (that's all I had) and found that they stuck to the paper pretty badly (still taste great, though!) The ones in the greased pan came out perfectly. I will definately make these again! Thanks for a great recipe.
