The texture was wonderful but it could have used more flavor! I used butternut squash and 1 cup of cooked quinoa (I was trying to use up leftovers). Next time I would add a touch more sugar and twice the cinnamon. Also, I stirred the quinoa in with the wet ingredients since the recipe did not stipulate when to add it in.

These were phenomenal! I made a few adjustments because I am doing Beach Bodies 21 day fix. I used all white wheat flour and instead of brown sugar, I used 1/3 cup of maple syrup. I also used 1/4 tsp of any spice that said a "pinch". Instead of raisins, I did craisins and I used 1 cup of cooked quinoa.
