Reviews forWhole Wheat Carrot Muffins
"Not bad for a whole wheat muffin. It certainly tastes healthy! Would prefer it to be just a tad moister."
"I dont know what went wrong here, because it looks like no one else mentioned any issues, but mine did not really rise. I did put in all the ingredients and definitely added the baking soda and powder. One thing that I noticed was that this was not a "batter" consistency, but more a thick paste. I thought it was strange that the recipe calls for so little liquid."
"Just made these this morning - delish! You'll want to double or triple the batch, though: only made about 16 mini muffins, which are fast disappearing. Moist & tasty - great recipe."
"I used applesauce instead of the margarine and they turned out wonderful!"
