the muffins came out great. i forgot to mention, i also used kamut flour - we don't use a lot of wheat at our house...


these are in the oven right now, and they smell absolutely heavenly.

i did, however, make a few adjustments - i hope my tweaking isn't leading to their downfall. i'll update once they're out.

i subbed organic unsweetened applesauce for the oil, used brown rice syrup instead of the maple, and added more carrot than called for, as well as grated pineapple and fresh ginger. i didn't have allspice, so i used all cinnamon, and i also added raisins for sweetness. dang, i was going to add vanilla, but i forgot. oh well.

i also only added about 2/3 c of water, because the pineapple was quite juicy, and i also threw in a splash of apple cider vinegar.

cross your fingers! they smell good, at the very least.
