Carrot Cake Muffin Treats

 
Carrot Cake Muffin Treats

Made these muffins along with the pineapple bran muffins. They were super moist and delicious too. There is no refined sugar added in this recipe, but the muffins were sweet enough because of the pineapples and raisins that also added some extra goodness as well. It did taste like a carrot cake but much lower fat and calories.

It did taste like a carrot cake but much lower fat and calories. If you like, you can frost these muffins with some cream cheese frosting.
