    These are delicious: moist and a wonderful crumb forms, too! I love the addition of wheat germ etc which doesn't affect the flavour, but gives the muffins some "body". I also added chopped walnuts; I do think the recipe needs some other flavour, though, maybe some additional spices like ginger.

    Delicious muffin. Well balanced, nice flavor, not too sweet, but just sweet enough to have with dinner or breakfast, not so much as dessert. In addition to the teaspoon of cinnamon I added a teaspoon of Chinese Five Spice (ground blend of cinnamon, anise seed, clove, ginger and fennel seed). I love adding a bit of that to baked goods, it is so delicious and a little different. I didn't have any wheat germ so I added ground flax seed instead. Tasted great.

    Update - made again this am. Used 3/4 c. ap flour, 3/4 c. almond flour (thought it needed more). same subs as yesterday (forgot to mention used 1/3 c brown sugar, 1/3 c. truvia), and remembered the buttermilk. Got 10 muffins, again delicious. Adding to muffin rotation! :)

    I LOVE these muffins!! It was very time-consuming finely grating the carrots, but worth it in the end. I did sub almond flour for the whole wheat, and added a bit more cinnamon plus a bit of vanilla extract. AND I am embarrassed to say, I forgot the buttermilk! I only ended up w/8 muffins. Next time I will remember the milk & hope to get 10 muffins out of it. But even w/out the milk, they r sooooo good! Thanks for the recipe!

    Delicious recipe! My husband and I were trying to figure out what to do with the pulp left over from our juice machine. We used carrot and apple pulp for this recipe and we were both happy with the yummy result.

    These muffins are sooo good! They taste as good as the cafeteria ones, if not better! ( And obviously MUCH healthier..) I omitted the wheat germ because I didn't have any and I also omitted the eggs, simply because I forgot to add them in! I also only used about 1-1/3 cup grated baby carrots, but I'm sure the muffins would taste lovely with the whole 2 cups. I added an extra pinch of cinnamon and the end result was delish!
