I love Mimi’s carrot muffins, but these ginormous muffins are loaded with calories and carbs and anything else that is not good for a diabetic. They posted the Carrot Raisin Bread recipe on their site so I copied it off and modified it to better reflect numbers that a Diabetic could live with. The bread also makes awesome muffins and when I do it in a regular muffin tin I can eat one for breakfast and get my treat without breaking the carb and calorie bank.
