    A great base & easy recipe. Here are my 2 changes & 1 addition; replaced the oil with 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce (an individual container size, which measures 1/2 cup), 1/2 cup dried cranberries to replace the nuts and added 2 cups of store bought already shredded carrots. Baked it for 30 min. Came out yummy. Thank you Ghostlyvision for sharing your recipe. This is a keeper.

    Really yummy! I didn't have crushed pineapple so I used some pineapple chunks and just mashed them a little bit with a fork. I also sprinkled the top with some sanding sugar and cinnamon because my family likes a crispy top to our muffins. I gave a muffin to my neighbor and she called to say that she hates carrot cake and she hates fruit in her muffins... but she LOVED these muffins! LOL! Thanks for the quick, easy, and delicious recipe... I'll definitely be making these again :^)
