These were very moist and the flavors blended really well. But they did not keep well - only lasted about 3 days before going bad - so next time I'll make a half-batch that we can finish quickly. 


I made the recipe as is and it turned out great!!  These are so tasty and make for a great breakfast treat!


Very good, and very moist!  Left out the walnuts and used applesauce for all the oil.  They were gone in 2 days! Made 12 regular muffins.


very, very good! I didn't add carrots or walnuts - but I did add coconut and a dash of ground ginger. Also, when mixing it was a little drier than most muffin mixes I've made, so I added some almond milk. It helped lots.
Thanks for the great recipe! Tasted wonderful!


This turned out to be moist and wonderful!
My kids and husband couldn't get enough (I will have to put some of it in a hiding place for later!).

I put the batter into a 9x13" glass pan and ended up with brownie type treats! Baked it at 350 for around 40mins. I also added some coconut, vanilla, raisins and chopped dates with the walnuts. This was one of the best recipes on this site so far  :)>>> ;)b ;)b
