    So, I am seeing add raisins, cinnamon and nuts. Switch out regular flour for whole wheat flour. Switch out margarine for applesauce. And lower the oven temp. Okay...got it! - 5/4/09

    I like the idea but wouldn't use the margerine, substitute some of the white flour with wheat and add cinnamon, ground flax seed and walnuts to make it more flavorful and extra healthy - 7/28/08

    These were good! I used half white and half wheat flour and added some cinnamon and ground ginger. I also dropped the baking temp to 350. They are light and moist and really good! - 5/6/09

    to make it healthier, use applesauce as a substitute for marg. Add cinnamon and nuts too. Make a light glaze of powdered sugar and very little water to add a tad of sweetness. - 4/2/08

    I intend to make this recipe, but will substitute the margarine for olive oil or applesauce. I will also probably add cinnamon as well. - 4/2/08

    I would never use margarine. (I'm surprised at Spark!)
    I'd change it to 1/2 c. olive oil. And what's wrong with whole eggs? Still believe that cholesterol hype? - 4/2/08

    I just got these out of the oven and ate my first one - they are very good in texture, I did have to lower the stove temp because I overbrowned my first batch too. I like the lack of sweetness! It lets the carrots kind of shine. - 4/2/08

    Swap out the margarine with applesauce, swap white flour with whole wheat flour, add cinnamon and nutmeg, add a handful of raisins and maybe agave nectar instead of sugar (directions say if the recipe calls for 1 c sugar, use 3/4 c of the agave nectar as it is a bit sweeter than sugar). Good recipe - 12/30/10
