These are yummy! I used carrots instead of sweet potatoes; subbed whole wheat for part of the flour; subbed molasses for part of the honey; & added cinnamon & some walnuts. Took 10 mins. to bake--7 was too short. (Also, you should include the egg in mixing instructions.) I'll make these again! - 1/16/11
