Those Carrot Raisin Bars are delicious. I made them with Buttermilk instead of yogurt. They dissapeared real fast.I have made those several times. Nice and moist.
Mmmm...these were lovely! I made quite a few subs, but nothing that really altered the essence of the recipe. I used oat bran instead of wheat bran and buttermilk instead of yogurt based on what I had on hand, and used about 1/4 c chopped walnuts instead of raisins due to personal preference. I also subbed one tablespoon olive oil and 2 T applesauce to cut back a bit on the fat. These really turned out great, and I actually got 18 regular-sized muffins out of the recipe (I think I have some crazy baking powder!). I agree with previous reviewers that the cinnamon and nutmeg were the real stars of the recipe. Thanks so much for posting; these will definitely go straight into my keeper file! Made for Veg*n Swap 19.
I chose muffins and with the exception of using Splenda brown sugar and using less raisins made them exactly as directed. They are wonderful bran muffins, moist and delicious. My sacrificial taste test muffin left me wanting to grab another. The cinnamon is without a doubt the recipe star and shines brilliantly. Thanks again for another delightful recipe Kat. :D
