I love these muffins! I did make a few modifications: <br/>1. Used 1/2 tsp dry ginger + 1/4 tsp allspice instead of 3/4 tsp allspice <br/>2. Added 2 Tbsp more oil <br/>3. Used frozen cherries instead of cranberries. <br/>Yum!

Muffins came out moist and didn't overly taste like pumpkin. Keep in mind that these muffins don't rise much, so fill your muffin trays all the way up. I made these muffins twice, and both times they needed just 15 minutes to bake.
