      EXCELLENT!!!! Really quite easy too. I think next time I would put the filling closer to the middle of the muffin. I used low fat cream cheese too and they were quite yummy!

      I was disappointed with this recipe. Pros: The spices were very nice, and they smelled wonderful while baking. Cons: Although I used ingredients that I thought would make them very moist (half honey, half brown sugar; coconut oil), they were a bit dry. Perhaps I should have baked them for less time. The cream cheese part just seemed like part of the cake of the muffin. I was hoping it would be moister and creamier. It had the same texture and flavor as the cake. I was expecting more of a filling. The kids ate them, but no one loved them. Two days later, we have five left. Around here, if something is very good, it's gone in a day.

      these were delicious! i actually used pumpkin instead b/c i had no carrots and it was great with pumpkin. i also used 1/3 fat cream cheese and found i had more than i needed but liked the muffins with a lot of filling the best!. i also threw in some oats and walnuts and vanilla, oh and ginger. deeelicious! i am excited to use carrots next time !
