Carrot-Raisin Bread (Healthier Version of Mimi's)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

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!

Sydney Mike April 12, 2009 can use all substitutes and have a near perfect diabetic safe cake.
I have made it twice using zero dairy and zero oils etc and it is terrific.
