My rating is based on the recipe itself and not with substitutions, which then would give it a 4/5, I think. These were really good after I followed many other reviewers' suggestions. I doubled the spices and cocoa, and doubled the baking powder/soda as well. Even so, the muffins are fairly dense, don't rise much, and the batter really could use a little thinning out. I was tempted to add a little milk, but didn't. Maybe next time. The flavour with the spices doubled is excellent. I might add even another cup of zucchini next time. I also used half white and half brown sugar. And for those that think a cup of oil is a lot, don't forget the recipe is for 24 muffins, and that really is a negligible amount *per muffin.* Because I was nearly out, I used half vegetable oil, and half light olive oil. I am not sure if this mix would differ from one cup of veg, but I found the muffins quite dry even with a cup of oil. As I expected, storing them in an airtight container and letting them mellow together did help moisten them up somewhat. Good base recipe, just needed some tweaking to up the rating. My kids loved them.
