Very versatile and good recipe. They are moist without being dense (like lead moist) as some "carrot cake" like recipes can be. I think this recipe would also make a wonderful 13x9 "snack" cake too. I was left with a half a can of crushed pineapple so I drained it very well and added it to 4oz of cream cheese, a half a stick of butter and about 3 TBL of confectioner sugar to make a butter to go along with the muffins. Very good.

Wonderful! I substituted applesauce for the oil, they turned out great. 3 weight watchers points this way ;).

soooo... here it was, sunday morning... and i have a bunch of extra carrots i've been wanting to use.... i chose this recipe cuz i had almost all the ingredients handy.... it turned out i was out of pineapple... so, was going to use oj like someone else did.... but then saw a can of mandarins in my pantry... and said "hmmm.. why couldn't i pulse those in the food processor & acheive essentially the same texture as crushed pineapple???" so that's exactly what i did... oh, and i couldn't resist tossing in some raisins.... so, here we go.. 1st bite.. hang on a sec... mmmmm!!! quite good!! not too sweet and a very pleasant texture! i went ahead & put in the pecans altho' i usually prefer my baked goods of the female persuasion (w/o nuts!) ... i had them hanging around from the holidays... and want to try to use them up... i think that since i added the raisins... the nuts could go & wouldn't be missed! :) overall: easy, tasty, versatile!
