I will definitely make these again. I forgot to buy apple jelly, so substituted orange marmalade which I had on hand. The idea was to get a bit of sweetness on the top. The marmalade was good, but I'll buy apple jelly, or make a powdered sugar glaze the next time. My grandkids loved them and neither one of them like carrots!

Even my picky eater loved these muffins. She was skeptic about having carrots in her muffins but was quickly won over when she tasted them. We all really enjoyed them!
