Recipe by TLB117
I based this on one of the Mimi's Carrot-Raisin Bread recipes I found. However, I have made several substitutions that greatly reduced the calories, lowered the fat and increased the fiber, and put it in muffin pans. While this no longer tastes much like Mimi's, it is yummy and doesn't taste like "health food". Replacing oil with mashed banana gives this a hint of banana bread flavor.

Whipped this up in no time at all & had ABSOLUTELY GREAT MUFFINS available for both breakfast & lunch! We had some with a homemade orange butter spread & some with a pecan honey butter that I got in the recent Honey Swap ~ Very tasty with either spread!
