I made these as 12 muffins. Everyone loved them, even a friend who claims not to like carrots or coconut. Very moist and not too sweet. Tomorrow I'll be making a double batch so they last a little longer.

The muffin is very moist and quite dense-- to the point of being heavy. Texture is nice and color and aroma are pleasant. It makes a better mini loaf than muffin.

These muffins are really yummy---make great mini-size muffins, too. Our batches have disappeared quickly! Even got a certain picky child to try these and she said they taste like pumpkin bread. We've also had fun with the recipe name!

less flavorful than expected; pineapple would have been a good addition
