I wouldn't say I went into this with a bad attitude, but definitely a defiant one. I thought there was no way these could be as good, and as adaptable, as everyone said. So I went a little crazy. Instead of all-purpose flour, I used half spelt flour and half whole wheat flour. I used 1 3/4 c. applesauce instead of chopped apples. I used craisins instead of raisins. I lowered the quantity of nuts and upped the quantity of carrots. And they turned out perfectly. These are so exceptional! You'd never guess they're healthy- even my kids, who can be picky little pains in the tush about grains, ate the heck out of 'em. I did make an icing using mascarpone, powdered sugar and milk in case anyone found them lacking in sweetness, but they're terrific plain as well. One last thing- these are super moist. Now go make some!
