Wow, these were great! At first I didn't think they had enough sugar, but after they sat overnight, they tasted just right. I made them for a moving day, and everyone loved them. My 11-month old niece devoured them, and her mom was happy because of the low sugar content. I also used all whole-wheat pastry flour, so they were even healthier.
My son won't eat carrots. Yet I did a double batch (as I have to feed & my hubby who eat like horses) & he ate three of them in one sitting! I guess it just goes to show that if a fussy eater can see it they won't eat it. If they can't see it they will eat it! Thanks so much for this recipe. I have added it to my cookbook so I can make them again.
If you give a moose these muffins, the moose will say Thank you, thank you, thank you! These are a type of carrot muffin that is moister than many carrot muffins and, with the nuts and coconut, is more flavorsome, too. These muffins would be at home on your Easter table, or accompanying any salad or just on their own for breakfast. Absolutely delicious!
