1/4 cup Sprinkle Sweet or Sugar Twin

"These wonderful muffins were conceived when a subscriber asked me to make over her husband's favorite breakfast treat, I shared my Healthy Exchanges version in the newsletter. Then a few months later, I received a letter from another subscriber telling me her granddaughter had stirred up a batch and entered them in the county fair--and won a blue ribbon!"

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine flour, dry pudding mix, Sprinkle Sweet, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin-pie spice. Add carrots and raisins. Mix well. In a small bowl, combine applesauce, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, eggs, and skim milk. Add to flour mixture. Mix just until combined. Spray muffin tins with butter-flavored cooking spray or line with muffin liners. Fill 8 muffin wells. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and continue cooling on wire racks. Serves 8. Freezes well.

Hint: Fill unused muffin wells with water. It protects the muffin tin and ensures even baking.
