Very delicious muffins, but as written are fatty muffins disguised as healthy muffins. The oil should be replaced (a portion or all) with apple sauce, pumpkin puree, or mashed bananas to make a healthier muffin. I doubled the recipe and instead of the 2 cups of oil for a doubled recipe, I used 1 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup apple sauce, and 1/2 cup oil. I also used sweetened coconut (since that's what I had) and reduced the sugar to 1 cup (for doubled recipe). They definitely could have been sweeter than I made them, but they still tasted great. They did taste very carrot-y though and I think I would have liked more apples (or maybe pieces instead of shredded). My 4-year-old loves these and I think next time I will try replacing the carrots with zucchini to sneak in a vegetable he wouldn't eat otherwise.
