whole wheat flour
packed brown sugar
finely grated carrots
i used 1/2 c applesauce and 1/2 c ground flax in place of the butter and they turned out wonderfully! really tasty muffins, will definitely make again.
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.
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 made almost 3 dozen mini muffins with this recipie. They are fantastic. Not to sweet, and moist with great ingrediants to make them nice and healthy.For mini muffins they took 10 minutes.
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.
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!
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.
Rave reviews from the kids. "Better than the ones from IGA!"
