Another ter-ruff-ic recipe from cookiedog! These are so moist and bananaee with pleasant surprises of candied ginger throughout. I used 2tsp lemon zest in place of the cinnamon and wish I used more. This would be wonderful with a crumb topping. Yum!

These are delicious. Love the pieces of candied ginger and the nuts. Nice texture and flavor! I used 3/4 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup brown sugar, and adjusted baking time down, according to Splenda's instructions. I used the cinnamon. I might add more candied ginger next time, just because I love ginger! Thanks, CD, for posting this!
