Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a large bowl, beat together Eggs, Oil, Applesauce, Splenda and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix in Flour, Baking soda, Baking powder, Salt and Cinnamon. Stir in carrots. (*Be careful not to over mix, because with all quick breads, if you over mix the finished product will be flatter than usual. Nobody likes an unraised muffin*) Fold in raisins, pecans, and coconut if you are including them in the recipe.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and a spoon and load the muffin papers with 1/4 cup filling each. (For me this recipe made 19 muffins, so two batches in the oven)
  • Bake in the oven for 16 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick can be inserted an pulled out clean.
  • Let cool completely and then top with frosting:
  • Frosting: mix cream cheese and powdered sugar together until smooth.
  • Add vanilla extract
  • Add 1/3 of the cool whip an mix until uniform throughout
  • Add the rest of the cool whip
  • Give a lucky person the spatula and frost the muffins with a knife, a finger, or just dunk the muffin in.

    I just made these today. They have an ok taste but could be improved. They also stuck to the papers very badly. I will be making a different recipe to take to Thanksgiving dinner.

    Edit: Just made the new recipe and they turned out great! I left out 1C of flour and added 1 pack instant vanilla sugar free pudding. I ditched the muffin papers and put them straight into a greased cupcake tin. I raised the heat to 375. For the frosting I subbed splenda for the powdered sugar and added a bit of butter. I also used sugar free cool whip. I'm making these for a family that has 2 diabetic people so I wanted to limit the sugar and carbs as much as possible.

    I love making cupcakes, rather than cake, because I can freeze them so easily and they're always handy to pop one out and thaw for dessert...I will have to make these. And I love the whipped cream in the frosting - great way to lighten it up a bit! Thanks for the post...
