Reviews forCarrot Bran Muffins
"Really great muffin that is not too sweet and incredibly moist. When I make again I am going to try adding 1/4 tsp each nutmeg and allspice to add a bit more spice flavour. Would also love to add some whole wheat flour instead of allpurpose just to make it a bit more healthy. Thanks to the TOH kitchen staff for finding this recipe."
"These are a great muffin when you don't want something overlywhelmingly sweet. They turned out really good, suprisingly moist and I loved the raisins in them. I had to substitute oat bran for wheat bran, because I didn't have any, and the muffins came out great and they freeze well too!"
"These were nice and moist but seemed to lack a little flavor."
"Great taste with low calories & fat. Just what I'm looking for!"
"These muffins are super tasty and moist. I overbaked them the first time and they were still good."
