Introduction

This is a recipe I adapted from the Lovely Little Kitchen. My son asked me to make a healthy option to this wonderful recipe so I replaced the oil with applesauce, sugar with splenda, and brown sugar with coconut palm sugar. I then added a cup of finely grated carrot, a cup of oat bran, and a cup of raisins, a tsp of baking powder and doubled the original amount of spices. I make this as mini muffins because my 2 yr old grandson loves them and isn't able to eat a large muffin. The size makes it a nice afternoon snack for grandma :) This is a recipe I adapted from the Lovely Little Kitchen.
