    Those Carrot Raisin Bars are delicious. I made them with Buttermilk instead of yogurt. They dissapeared real fast.I have made those several times. Nice and moist.

    Mmmm...these were lovely! I made quite a few subs, but nothing that really altered the essence of the recipe. I used oat bran instead of wheat bran and buttermilk instead of yogurt based on what I had on hand, and used about 1/4 c chopped walnuts instead of raisins due to personal preference. I also subbed one tablespoon olive oil and 2 T applesauce to cut back a bit on the fat. These really turned out great, and I actually got 18 regular-sized muffins out of the recipe (I think I have some crazy baking powder!). I agree with previous reviewers that the cinnamon and nutmeg were the real stars of the recipe. Thanks so much for posting; these will definitely go straight into my keeper file! Made for Veg*n Swap 19.
