You can’t win ’em all. After the smashing success of the triple-chocolate cookies, these muffins can’t top “adequate.” It’s my second foray into Smart Muffins, and I’m not terribly pleased with the results. The texture is off; it’s almost like there wasn’t enough gluten development, which is opposite expectations for a low-fat quickbread. Also, I really should have processed the carrots a bit more. But carrots are cheap, and even lackluster muffins make a decent snack.
Edited to add: these muffins were just about perfect after mellowing overnight. Maybe I should wait and eat everything twelve hours after I make it.
