I modified the recipe by adding less sugar and added a cup of raisins, 1 cup shredded zucchini, 1/4 cup ground flax seeds, and 1 tsp ginger. I doubled the quantity of vanilla and cinnamon. They came out superb! Next time I plan to substitute some of the oil with applesauce and add mulberries and orange zest. This is an excellent recipe because it provides the flexibility to add your own flair. Cheers!
