    54's Note:

    sadly, i did not come up with the name but these are really great muffins all the same. this recipe is from my rapidly deteriorating goddess in the kitchen cookbook (by marjie lapanja) and i figured here would be a good place to keep this. just a few notes: i make my own applesauce for this. just cut up a few apples, put them in a pot, add water and boil 'til saucey. i've found that a microplane is perfect for grating the carrots and, as for the fresh fruit, anything will work really. i like a combo of mango and crushed pineapple but pretty any non-citrus fruit is fine. prep time and cooking times are both estimated.

    1. 1
      preheat oven to 375 (F).
    2. 2
      in a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (first 8 ingredients).
    3. 3
      in another large bowl combine the wet ingredients (next 6 ingredients).
    4. 4
      pour the wet into the dry and mix until just combined.
    5. 5
      gently stir in the carrots and fruit.
    6. 6
      scoop batter into muffin tins, filling each cup to the top.
    7. 7
      baking time seems to vary and i'm not entirely sure why but set the timer for 20 minutes and check on the muffins every 5 minutes after that. it'll probably take about 40 minutes. basically, you want your muffins to pass the old toothpick test. keep in mind though, a little underdone is ok as these freeze and reheat wonderfully.

      These are most definately high fiber, so beware before consuming them. I can imagine eating these on a regular basis, certain I would lose at least 5 pounds a week...thinking of sending this recipe to Biggest Loser TV We ate these with a tad bit of real butter just to add a touch of self indulgence. Great and easy recipe, and will be using it again.

      Great low fat hight fiber muffin. We wanted them a bit more sweet so topped them with honey buter and it was fab. Will definitely keep the recipe. Thanks.

      This recipe is very good, if not a bit time consuming. I replaced the wheat germ with flax seed mill as that was what I had on hand. I also baked half of them in muffin top pans. As I am still getting used to the pans, I ended up with more than 12 muffins. My DL loved these muffins, so I think I will be doing them again! Thanks for the recipe...much appreciated!
