Could just be me, but the cooking time on mine was half (closer to 10 min than 20 for regular-sized muffins). For mini muffins, it was closer to 5 minutes. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the muffins. They are best when served warm, so I reheated mine in the toaster oven to give that fresh-from-the-oven taste.

Maybe they cooked just a little bit too much but they're still yummy. They're too golden, but inside they're moist. Since I don't like nutmeg, I used cinnamon and a little bit more. I used half canola oil and half unsweetened applesauce. I used only 1/3 cup of sugar. My son wanted to have a muffin for a snack at school. He likes zucchini muffins and he likes yours :) Thanks Bergy :) Made for all you can cook buffet

Very good muffins... I substituted virgin coconut oil for the canola and baked them about 13 minutes (kept checking them after 10 minutes to make sure they didn't overbrown), but otherwise I followed the original recipe. My muffins were very light with a delicate crumb. Thanks for posting...
