Left out the sugar and used mashed banana instead of butter...also added 1/4 cup of oats to milk (microwaved) and reduced flour to 3/4 cup. I also did 1/2tsb baking soda and 1 tsb baking powder and did dry and wet ingredients separately. I liked them :) Submitted by:

These muffins are very tasty and do taste alot like carrot cake. I added 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce and used 1/4 cup of the sugars. It's still very sweet. I was able to make 11 muffins. Submitted by:

I made 12 muffins scraping up every little bit. They are small but I'm using them as a snack with a cup of coffee so it's ok. I added 1/4 cup applesauce, 1/4 cup flax meal,and cut the sugars in half. I thought they were really yummy. I used the butter bc I hate rubbery baked goods! Thanks! Submitted by:

I added the raisins, so out goes the 95 calorie count! I made this recipe as stated and ended up with twelve normal sized muffins. Had one warm with coffee...so good! Submitted by:

Really easy to make. Next time, I will try with more carrots and more spices. It does make 12 tiny muffins. But most of the time, those 100 calories treats you car buy are just as small, so it fine for me. Submitted by:

I'm glad I made these as they are very nice. I did have a problem getting 12 from the batter and opted instead to make 6 larger muffins. Next time (there will be a next time!) I'll use less sugar as they were a bit too sweet and more carrot to bulk them up a bit. Submitted by:

Disappointing. I reduced the sugar slightly and added 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce. The texture was fine & and they were sweet enough, but they definitely tasted reduced-fat to me. I did get 12 muffins, but they're pretty small. Submitted by:

these are really good - they're dense, but I added just 1/4 cup of applesauce to the full recipe which made getting 12 easier and added negligible calories to each. Submitted by:

I substitued 1/3 c cinnamon applesauce for the butter, added 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, omitted the fresh ginger but increased the powdered ginger to 3/4 teaspoon. I got 12 muffins, but they were very small so I made 8 instead. They were SO moist and they tasted full-fat. Will make them again. Submitted by:

I made these but cut down the sugar because of other comments. I also just made 6 muffins, but they were full so I baked at 400 for 17 min, they rose beautifully, but I should have used all the sugar called for. Nice muffin. Submitted by:

I couldn't resist making this great recipe but had no wheat flour. So, I subbed Fiber One pancake mix (lots of fiber) for the flour and proceeded as the recipe directs. I used 2 cups of carrots and 1/2 cups each of pralined chopped pecans and golden raisins. 12 cupcakes later - delish! Thanks! Submitted by:

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it looks good. I love carrot cake but can't have it normally. Why not put some fat free cream cheese in this recipe to give it more of a carrot cake taste? Some one let me know. Submitted by:

Good, sweet, but didn't rise too well. I used nondairy margarine and water. (I can't eat dairy.) I upped the spices and added half an apple, grated. I ran out of brown sugar so I used 1/4 cup. I had no trouble making 12 muffins with my smaller tin and smaller sized cupcake cups. Submitted by:

I cut the sugar to 1/2c loose-pack brown sugar, 3/4tsp powdered ginger as I had none fresh, 1/4c ground flax seed, 3/4c 1% milk, and even with the additions I only got 9 muffins, 1/4c of batter each. Very, very tasty, though! I also separated the egg & lightly beat the white to add some lightness. Submitted by:

These were great. I was only able to get 10 muffins out of the recipe. I made a few substitutions-doubled the spices, substituted equal for the white sugar and egg beaters for the eggs and added a chopped up fresh pineapple spear. We loved them, a nice change from my usual low cal banana muffins! Submitted by:

I increased the amount of carrot, probably to about 2 cups. I added 6 Tbsp of wheat germ, decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup of each sugar and used splenda brown sugar. I made 6 muffins instead of 12 ... because several of the reviews commented on fewer than 12 muffins. Submitted by:

Very tasty, but I have to agree with the posters who say they didn't get 12 muffins. I got 10, which means that they are 120 calories each without nuts and raisins. I will probably redo the recipe for my nutrition tracker so that I can easily enter them next time I make them. Submitted by:

Lovely muffins! I added 3/4 tsp baking soda, combined the dry and wet ingredients separately, then tipped the wet into the dry to combine and give fluffy muffins. This yielded 9 full-size muffins, and I reduced the calories by using applesauce instead of butter and slightly reducing the sugar. Submitted by:

These muffins are moist and very yummy. The recipe does barely make 12 muffins and they shrink after sitting out for awhile. Used 1/4 cup currants, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts for a total of 134 calories a piece. If you like taste of ginger these are a must try. Submitted by:

I got 12 out of it, but only a tablsp. per muffin. So is that still 100 cals? WOW. Next time will try splenda and brown sugar splenda for the sugars. Also I used one tblps of flax seed with three tblsp of water for egg replacement. Used coconut oil instead of butter. Thanks for the recipe. Submitted by:

My husband, son and I all loved these. I changed the recipe a tad as well. I added 1/4 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup raisins and a little more milk cause the batter was too thick. I also used Splenda brown (2 TBS and 1 tsp) in place of the brown sugar. It only took 18 minutes in my oven. Submitted by:

I really loves those muffins (taste like carrot cake) the spice makes them very yummy. I did it already 5 times..I now cut my sugar by half so it's even less calories (87) and add instead raspberries or blueberries. Submitted by:
