      Scrumptious and much healthier than the coffee cake I made on the weekend! I cheated with grating the carrots, just chopped them up and dumped them in the mini food processor set to grind. I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice -- I imagine it's probably about the same. I used honey, buttermilk and applesauce. These made exactly 18 muffins and took exactly 15 minutes to cook. I could barely wait for them to cool to eat one. Yum!

      I just inhaled two of these, warm from the oven. So so good. I used gluten free flour, brown sugar Splenda, sour cream (instead of buttermilk), melted margarine, and dried cranberries (instead of raisins). This made 12 rounded muffins for me that were done after 18 minutes. They were moist without being goopy. I'd love to try this in a loaf pan as a quick bread - mostly so that there will be more surface area for me to slather butter on a warm slice. Thank you for posting!

      Left out the raisins and they were still really delicious! Always looking for new things to make for breakfast, and this one was a winner with us!
