SO GOOD! I used whole wheat pastry flour, used more applesauce for all of the oil except 1 Tbsp., skipped the coconut & cut the sugar in half. Delicious! Oh--also used 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed instead of Ener-G egg replacer.

I cut the recipe in half & got 12 good-sized muffins. I'm glad I didn't make the whole batch, since I just have myself & my boyfriend to feed!

i have a bunch of carrot/apple/cucumber/parsely pulp from my juicing spree i went on this morning, and really dont want to waste it so i will definitely use it all for this recipe and report back


these are delicious! i used flax seed meal for the egg replacer. i didn't make any changes except for being lazy with the measuring. they were quite a bit of work for muffins, but worth it, and  i got 24 muffins!  5 star recipe, i will be making these often.


These muffins are fantastic!  I left out the carrots though because I didn't have any and last time I completely forgot to mix in the coconut and raisins and it still turned out fabulous.  I did halve the sugar though, they seemed a bit too sweet.  Thanks for a practically fool proof recipe YAY


These sound delicious. Can ground flax seed meal be used for the egg replacer powder?

I definitely think so! Flax is usually my egg replacement of choice, especially in something hearty & "earthy" tasting like this! Yum. I want to make these!
