Except for the small amount of oil these muffins are low-fat, but you would never know it, they bake out high with tons of flavor and are extremely moist, you may throw in some chopped nuts also --- for greasing see my Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) --- for more low fat muffin recipes visit www.kittencalskitchen.com

These are wonderful! I am looking for healthy muffin recipes now that I eat breakfast on the go on work days, and this one is definitely a keeper. I used all wheat flour and did not miss the white flour at all. Thanks Kittencal for another keeper :)

Being a lover of carrot cake...especially the frosting, these did not disappoint. (even w/o the frosting). Deliciously moist. What a great find/keeper. I did omit the nuts...but I'll bet it's an additional bonus if you decide to add em.

Terrific Recipe, I used 1/2 c br sugar and egg whites instead of egg, and Walnuts in place of raisins. I will make again, they are very good.
