    I was disappointed with this recipe. Pros: The spices were very nice, and they smelled wonderful while baking. Cons: Although I used ingredients that I thought would make them very moist (half honey, half brown sugar; coconut oil), they were a bit dry. Perhaps I should have baked them for less time. The cream cheese part just seemed like part of the cake of the muffin. I was hoping it would be moister and creamier. It had the same texture and flavor as the cake. I was expecting more of a filling. The kids ate them, but no one loved them. Two days later, we have five left. Around here, if something is very good, it's gone in a day.

    these were delicious! i actually used pumpkin instead b/c i had no carrots and it was great with pumpkin. i also used 1/3 fat cream cheese and found i had more than i needed but liked the muffins with a lot of filling the best!. i also threw in some oats and walnuts and vanilla, oh and ginger. deeelicious! i am excited to use carrots next time !

    These were really good, and we will definitely make them again. Instead of canned carrots, I used approx 1 1/2 cups finely shredded carrots (healthier, and we have lots of carrots right now). They smelled HEAVENLY while they were baking. Like another reviewer, we used low fat cream cheese, also (that's what we always use). Big hit with Sunday Brunch.

    EXCELLENT!!!! Really quite easy too. I think next time I would put the filling closer to the middle of the muffin. I used low fat cream cheese too and they were quite yummy!
