    Very Good
    very moist and yummy! I made without flaxseed, these freeze well and are great warm! - 5/29/10

    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

    I sub'd out applesauce for oil, raisins for dates, and 1% milk for buttermilk. Turned out a little heavy but absolutely delicious!!! A staple here for a quick breakfast from now on! - 10/1/08
