These were not quite what I expected, but definitely tasty. I made a few revisions: I plumped the raisins in warm water before adding, added chopped pecans, and increased the cinnamon to a teaspoon. Next time, I'll increase the other spices as well, and try to use more applesauce and less oil. They are not too sweet, a lot of carrot texture, without a lot of muffin, cakelike texture. DEFINITELY spray the muffin tin or liners, the muffins tend to stick.

These muffins were great. I have been looking for a great tasting healthy breakfast muffin for a long time, and now my search is over! I did make a few adjustments - I doubled each spice ingredient (per other reviews) and I doubled the applesouce and halved the veggie oil. Not too sweet and the longer they sit (so the flavors can meld) the better they get!! Love this recipe. Thanks Sara.

I made these for the kids at the school that I work at...although the were very hearty and healthy, the kids did not care for them (maybe because they WERE hearty and healthy)...
