As others have said, these are not overly sweet and the fruit really shines through. I used a fine shred on the carrot and I'm glad I did. I also used 3 whole eggs. Next time I will add a little bit of clove or allspice to the mix.
I made this recipe as a coffee cake and is was WONDERFUL! I will definitely make it again as muffins!
Really good and hearty. Pumpkin pie spice is a must. Don't over cook.
These turned out great. The muffins were very moist and not too sweet. I usually like more spice in carrot cake so I may add a little pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg next time but they are also very yummy the way the recipe reads. I like to fix muffins/cupcakes with fruit/vegetables to help add extra produce when you wouldn't otherwise expect it. The crushed pineapple is a really nice touch.
