This is a great recipe--I was looking for something low sugar (I did use the regular brown sugar) and it is very flavorful with all of the fruit! I like the tang from the sour cream, and also used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce. I did add 3 oz of raisens, which I think made it perfect!
I would have rated this higher, but really it is my fault because I did not have the proper ingredients. I did not use pineapple and used all-purpose flour instead of self-rising. Also my carrots were a little too chunky and were not pureed right. (Blenders are not good at it, unless it is just my blender...) I will definately make these again, and hopefully they will turn out better for me.
I chose to make these for our Zaar World Tour - Gardening Challenge. I can see me making these again and again. No need to change a thing or to add butter to them when done. We all like them just the way they were. Excellant!
The combination of pineapple with the carrots provides these with extra moistness. I was able to reduce the fat by using plain yogurt in place of the sour cream. Also, 1/2 cup of butter is a lot for my dietary needs. I used 1/4 cup of butter with 1/2 cup applesauce. These are delicious and really do not need the sprinkling of powdered sugar.
These are just great!!! I made them exactly as the recipe, using light sour cream. I am diabetic and it was such a nice treat to have such a tasty muffin for my snack this evening. Hubby had two for his snack and asked if I would make them again tomorrow so that he could take them with us tomorrow when we go to visit our grandson. Thanks for a truly great 5 star recipe.
Yummy Muffins, I made them just like the recipe stated, next time I am going to add more cinnamon. That is our personal taste. I used my home canned carrots and pureed them with the hand blender. The muffins raised up nicely & the texture is great. My DH is a diabetic, he really enjoys having goodies like these. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
