Pumpkin Carrot Muffins

Submitted by: RCWILKINSON

Introduction

These muffins make it easy to eat your veggies. I grate the carrots really fine and the kids don't even notice they are there. These muffins make it easy to eat your veggies. I grate the carrots really fine and the kids don't even notice they are there.

    I made these muffins added about 1/4 cup of raisins, baked them at 350 for about 30 minutes, and they were incredible, delicious and moist. I will definitely make them again. - 10/2/07

    Because they won't "rise" a lot, make sure you bang your pan down to level out the muffin mix. I substituted brown sugar for the brown sugar Splenda mix to save some calories. They were very good! Thanks! - 11/9/08

    Great as a breakfast food. I added a couple tablespoons of flax seed just to make it just that more healthy!! - 1/26/08

    My muffins didn't rise well, and it was hard to get them cooked through. They are healthy, but not quite as sweet as I like my muffins to be. - 3/21/07

    I agree, cooking time was off on recipe. I thought they were okay, but probably wouldn't make them again. - 3/19/07

    Very tasty! But we cooked them longer than the recipe says and at a little higher temperature. - 3/17/07

    I tried this recipe over the past weekend with organic whole wheat flour and it took much longer than 10-14 minutes to cook. At 20 minutes it was still not cooked all the way. It probably would have been great if I left it in there longer. - 3/12/07

  • Wonderful flavor and texture! I added some pecans because my husband loves anything with nuts, so this helped him "eat his veggies." - 1/22/14

  • This is an awesome recipe. My 4 yo and I made it together. Came out great. We're thinking of making a pastry-in-a-can with this. Thanks a lot. I've seen a lot of people commenting on cooking time. Ours was fine at 375. I used WW pastry flour as I prefer it when baking. That might make a difference. - 11/11/13

  • I just made this. it was dense but delicious. i used one mashed banana instead of egg and only 1T of oil rather that 2. The 1/2 cup of carrot i used was left overs from my juicer so there was nearly no moisture in them. It was nice and moist when all finished. baked 350 for 25 min. loved this!!! - 11/20/12

  • I have made these twice now & LOVE them! The first time I followed the recipe exactly - the 2nd time I used 1/2 cup carrot & 1 1/2 cup pumpkin (doubling the recipe) because that is what I had. They were DELICIOUS!! The only problem I have is keeping them around - they go fast!! - 5/21/11
