Perfect for a healthy muffin. I added extra spices of allspice and ginger. Also used butter and dark brown sugar. Mini-muffins cooked in oven for about 15 min (maybe less). The texture is great - lightyly crisp on outside and soft and moist on inside. I'm also trying this as a loaf - I'll let you know how it cooks... Thanks! My 2 & 3 year olds love them.
