    Reggie's Mom's Note:

    This is a recipe from the G.I. Diet book. They are loaded with fibre but taste really nice. Not a light cake like muffin. The cranberries give these muffins a nice little burst of tartness. I didn't have any fresh cranberries so I used dried.

      Made as directed and they were good. The NEXT time, I changed a few things and they were better: The ginger overpowered the orange, so I cut it to 1/8 t.; increased orange zest to 1 &1/2 Tb.; and used heated OJ concentrate to replace the hot hot water. The directions did not say so, but I cut each cranberries in half. The sugar substitute I used was 1/8 c. splenda and 1/8c Stevita (stevia). Moist, dense muffins. Made 16 of them.
