    i didnt have oat bran, so i used wheat bran, subbed 1/2 the brown sugar with splenda, and used 2 mashed bananas instead of the carrot/apple/raisens, since it's what i had on hand. my 2 year old loved them, his picky friend did as well, and so did my husband! i'll continue to make this! - 7/15/09

    I make these when I travel and I eat 2 for breakfast with some juice. I use 7/8 cup of honey in place of the b. sugar. You have to reduce the milk by 3 tbl. so they aren't so wet. Use flax and water in place of the eggs. So delicious and use your imagination! - 7/14/09

    I was surprised at how moist these muffins are. I only put in 1/2 of the brown sugar, but next time I will increase it, as I do find they are lacking in sweetness. I subbed 1/2 cup of the carrots for pineapple, but I really can't notice the taste of the fruit. so, I would leave that out next time. - 7/17/09
