"What I like the most about these muffins is that the spices make the muffin what it is. The raw cane sugar and whole wheat pastry flour are the best to use because they are the least processed ingredients available and retain more of their natural goodness. The chunky apple bits give me more for my bite and add another level of sweetness to the muffin. These make a great breakfast or brunch item, or you can have one with a cup of coffee and unwind! Enjoy!"

These muffins tasted great and were a nice low-calorie treat for the morning. The reason they got four stars is because they came out kind of tough. I will try this recipe again and mix it even less than I did originally. If you make this recipe make sure to only mix the dry/wet ingredients just so!
I will NOT make them again. Very tough and chewy. Flavors were so mild, I couldn't taste anything but the ginger. I followed the recipe to a T. I mixed the batter minimally, and took them out of the oven after 20 minutes.
These muffins turned out awsome, they were so moist and fluffy. I would recommend checking on your muffins after 20 minutes cooking time though as this was all the time mine needed in the oven, any longer and they would have been over done. Also be sure to only mix your ingredients until just moistened to avoid your muffins turning out tough. Thank you so much for providing a great healthy recipe for my family :)
We were a little short on all-purpose flour and I used stone ground whole wheat flour and only 1/4 cup of sugar and this still turned out GREAT. My husband and I both loved them, as did the kids. Awesome recipe!
These were delicious! I needed to find a healthy-ish breakfast treat for some people at the office, so I gave this one a shot and it was a hit! They came out nice and moist, and the spices really make the flavour unique! I served them with some vanilla cream cheese spread and got rave reviews. I will definitely make them again. =)
These muffins are really delicious, and a nice, low cal option for snacking and breakfast. I followed the recipe, except that I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and I used just plain, white sugar. I also used all white flour instead of half and half. I think that next time I might try replacing that tablespoon of oil for a tablespoon of applesauce - it's a common baking swap and seeing as these are apple muffins I think that the applesauce would lend nicely to the apple flavor of the muffin. I also only had vanilla yogurt on hand, so I used that - which was another reason that I chose to lessen the amount of sugar used. The chunks of apples in the muffin were a really nice treat! The recipe states that it only makes a dozen muffins, but I got a dozen and a half, so that was nice! This was a great recipe!
These were very good and I would defiitely make them again! I used 2 C of whole wheat flour instead of including the all-purpose flour and they turned out great! Thanks for sharing.
