    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    Wonderful carrot bran muffins that are low in fat, yet, I find, taste almost buttery. They have a wonderful moist yet fluffy texture, and not too sweet delicious cinnamon flavour and aroma. The batter is quite thin, which creates smooth domed muffin tops. I have always made these with the soured milk instead of buttermilk. And yes, there really is 1 tbsp cinnamon in this recipe, it is not a typo! NOTE: Do not use muffin liners with this recipe - they are too moist and delicate for them so the muffins will stick to the liner.

      Yum delish, made these today, omitted the raisin cause I don't like them but added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, used the buttermilk and margarine and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar, followed all other ingredients and directions as noted, I really enjoyed them but didn't think my hubby would like them b/c he likes the sweet stuff (that's why he married me hahaha) but he really liked them and had two, not that these weren't sweet enough but I think someone with a sweet tooth may want to add the full1/3rd cup....will definitely be making these again.

      Great muffins. I don't normally like bran muffins but these are moist and flavorful. Any variety of dried fruit works well with this recipe. I recommend plumping the dried fruit in hot water for 15 mins before adding to the mixture. It really makes the fruit come back to life and adds extra moisture.

      Very good, I am not a fan of raisins so i substituted for figs and used 6 grains organic flour and added pumpkin seeds and flax seeds for a little crunch...still turned out moist and delicious!
