Spicy Carrot Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by whatshouldimakefors

This recipe is from 'Robin Hood Home Baking', a book that I got for Christmas several years ago. The first time I tasted these muffins I knew that I would no longer have to search for another carrot muffin recipe-these are the best! I followed the directions exactly, but omitted the walnuts. Sometimes I use half whole wheat flour too. I always double the recipe and try to sneak a few away for the freezer;)

These were a great muffin...next time I'm going to replace the oil with apple sauce and see how they turn out. It's hard to stop at one...actually it's hard to stop at 3 so if I can get the cal's down it will be better. Thanks for sharing :)
