Awesome Carrot Muffins

Rated as 3.46 out of 5 Stars

"I run a day care and was looking for a good snack too feed the kids with little sugar but still big on taste. I came up with these. I have made a batch of these for the last three days now and can't keep them around. Even the parents have been asking for the recipe. Frost with the Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting recipe."

I've made this recipe twice. The first time I thought I made a mistake. The second time I realized it was the recipe. Too much salt, oil and baking soda.

I'm rating this recipe as is. NOT GOOD. Too greasy, too much egg. I think the main reason people gave this a high rating is because of all the changes the reviewers made. OK people, don't ra...

After reading the reviews I made a few changes. I lowered the oil to 2/3 a cup, since a few people felt they were greasy. They were fine with that amount- still moist, but not greasy. I also r...

I have made this recipe twice now, once with raisins and once without. I also replaced about 3/4 of the oil with applesauce and did not frost them in anyway. My toddler gobbles these up. I ag...
