I loved the fact that I could throw this all together so quickly and the muffins baked up in just 20 minutes. I did find it took me a bit longer to prepare the recipe than the indicated 10 minutes (I'd allow closer to 15 minutes) but that wasn't a problem because they were so yummy I didn't mind! Not too sweet and a nice combination of spices. I made them without the icing.
I am so glad I tried this recipe. I've been looking for a carrot muffin recipe with less sugar and fat (I also subbed canola oil for butter) and nutritional extras like wheat germ and whole grain flour. The muffins turned out great: moist, sweet, flavorful. They will be a lunchbox staple and morning treat for the whole household. Thanks and good job, Derf!
Lovely! I got to the point where I was ready to add the final ingredient and realized I was out of molasses! So I used honey with great success. I left off the topping and made these all as mini muffins to take to my nephew's first communion party. These were enjoyed by everyone. Thanks.
these are very good muffins... we didn't use the wheat germ or the icing. they were excellent without them. thanks for posting a very goof recipe
Yummy! I didn't have wheat germ, so omitted that, and used oil instead of butter. Delicious muffins!
