• I love carrot cake! And pineapple is not the norm….it must be some sort of filler in the low-fat version. Did you use the whole-wheat flour the recipe called for? How did that work out?

    • I didn’t use whole wheat flour, I just used normal all purpose, since that was all I had in the house. I think I removed all the healthy additions to these muffins! Oops. 🙂

  • I’ve seen pineapple in lots of carrot cake recipes (also coconut in many, but not all). I’m guessing that it helps with moisture as well as sweetness, but I’m glad that yours turned out well even without it. I’d definitely prefer no pineapple.

  • Hm, I don’t know about that pineapple either. I’m not really crazy about it. Sometimes I put in small chunks of orange or tangerine for some extra sweetness and succulence. Definitely worth the try.
