READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From the Delicious Living magazine. Haven't tried yet, but their muffins have been good. Recipe states: For extra flavor and fiber, add a cup of grated carrots, mashed banana, or whole raspberries.

These were tasty, but just a bit heavy. I think they needed a little more "fat", or "fat replacement", i.e applesauce or yogurt. Maybe adding the carrots or banana as suggested in the description would work. I am not a vegan, so maybe I will try with 1 egg. Not overly sweet, which is a plus to me. With a little tweaking, this could earn more stars! I'll work on it.
