THis recipe was rather bland and tasteless. I was excited about trying a healthy muffin for lunches but they were so gross no one ate them. More spice and flavouring definitely needed. Read More

I really liked these muffins alot!!! I made a few changes. I used half the ammount of molases and substituted honey for the other half. I also doubled the brown sugar. Oh and I love the spices so I doubled the ammount of cinnamon and allspice. I've made this recipe twice and my husband who hates muffins even likes them:) That's high praise coming from him.

I was looking for a way to get carrots into my toddler's diet and she (and daddy) really liked these. However they weren't as big a hit with me and my older son. The molasses is a little overpowering for my taste (and I like molasses!) so I'll probably use less next time. I also substituted cardamom for the allspice and topped 'em with a basic cream cheese frosting. Read More

I'm sorry but these muffins were not as good as they sounded. All I could taste was baking soda! I can only hope that I did something wrong in the preparation because they were so wierd. I am a big fan of healthy food so I know it wasn't the lower sugar that bothered me. These tasted very wrong. I threw them out into the woods for the squirrels to eat. I hope they like them.

Great muffins - I got some delicious crust with moist and chewy inside. Next time I will decrease the amount of sugar though (may be the carrots I used this time were too sweet though). Thanks! Read More

Excellent recipe! I like that it makes 24. I did add a little more sugar 2/3 cup and reduced molasses to 1/4 because of others comments but I think 1/2 c molasses is fine. I couldn't taste the molasses at 1/4. Also I might add a little more spice next time. I baked 20 min. just right. They were moist. Nuts on top was nice as well. I might sprinkle cinnamon/sugar on top next time. (I thought 2 Tbsp baking powder might be too much and used 1 Tbsp and a little less salt was perfect.)I will make these again and again. Read More
