  • these were good- not dense, like I thought they might be. I substituted pumpkin for the sweet potato and they came out well! - 3/6/09

  • Very good, and good for you! My 2 year old loves, which is especially great. I left out the dates, and made 12 of them instead of 18. - 2/20/09

  • So good! The ginger is sharp but the muffin is sweet & delicate. I used 1 white sweet potato and 1 yam. Also added 1/2 cup walnuts. Without the cooking time indicated, I slightly undercooked one batch and overcooked the next, but were still great. I eat with FF plain yogurt dusted w/vanilla sugar. - 2/5/09
