These healthy muffins were delicious and disappeared quickly. The streusel didn't seem dry enough so I added some oats to it which turned out great. The only other change I made was to double the cinnamon. If I make this again, I might add a little more ginger too because I really like a slightly stronger ginger flavor. Otherwise, this is a great recipe.
