I ran 5 or 6 carrots through a juicer and took the soft pulp that was left of them and used that for the carrots in this recipe. I used more spices than called for and added ginger as well as subbed applesauce for the oil. The muffins actually are pretty good but there's no way you get 36 out of this recipe. I only got 16 normal sized muffins which means the calorie count is nowhere near the 87/muffin like the nutrition information claims. Read More

This is definitely one of the best carrot muffin recipes that I've ever made. They were moist without being dense even though there isn't much fat! I would suggest upping the spices though. Highly recommended! Read More

I cut this recipe in half. I agree with one of the other reviewers that this needs more of pretty much everything. I kept the bare bones of the recipe the same only using whole wheat flour upping the baking soda to a full teaspoon and adding a teaspoon of baking powder. I used one teaspoon of SD's pumpkin pie spice and organic honey instead of molasses (I just happened to be out at the moment). I did use lowfat buttermilk an organic egg and organic carrots and raisins. I started out with the original amount of carrots raisins and nuts and ended up increasing the chopped carrot to 3/4 of a cup and the raisins and pecans to a half cup FOR A HALF RECIPE. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. We don't like walnuts in this house so I used pecans. Right before baking I sprinkled the muffins with a slight amount of sugar. These turned out almost like carrot cake. I think as a base recipe this is really great but it really does need the extra added stuff. I think had I not increased the additions it would not have turned out as good. NOTE: For a half recipe I got 12 medium sized muffins not 18. 350 for 15 minutes was perfect baking time. Read More

I was not too happy with this recipe. The good thing about it is that it is very healthy. It needs a little more sweetness and a little more spice. They are moist which I like but not sweet enough for me. Read More
