Delicious muffins. Even if I did some changes. I wanted it healthier so used unsweetened applesauce, didn't pack the brown sugar, used fat-free sour cream, unsweetened coconut, no raisins and a little bit less walnuts. I baked them 20 minutes. They're moist. Thanks Heidi. Made for Beverage tag.

Excellent muffin! I added unsweetend coconut and the sweetness level of the muffin was right on target. I also put only half of the cinnamon, loved the carrot taste...and it was just right in the moisture dept. Made exactky 12 muffins and they crowned up nicely! A keeper! Made this for the muffin/cupcake challenge.

These were so good. I used applesauce instead of butter and egg sub instead of eggs, and also used fat-free sour cream. Very good combo of flavors and I really liked that the coconut wasn't overpowering.
