Moist and delicious, easy to add or substitute ingredients like raisins and dried cranberries, even papaya or mango. Versatile and delicious!

My sister-in-law gave me a huge ripe papaya so I googled a recipe using papaya and found this one. This is an amazing meal-in-a-muffin!! I fed it to my 3 grandchildren for lunch one day and smiled to myself that they were eating carrots, zucchini, papaya, whole wheat and oat bran!! How nutritious can you get! They are tasty but I felt they needed just a little meeting salt. This is going to be a favorite.

My son loves zucchini bread and carrot muffins so I thought this recipe would be perfect. However no one in my household liked it. They had a spongy consistency and were not sweet enough.
