Yield:
12 muffins
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Nonstick vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 package (16.6 ounces) date muffin mix
  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup pitted dates, chopped (dates may be available already chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • Cream Cheese Center Frosting:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup carrot shavings
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Spray 12 muffin tins with nonstick spray. In a medium bowl, stir muffin mix, bran, milk, and egg until just blended. Fold in carrots, dates, and confectioners' sugar. Be careful not to over-mix; the batter should be lumpy. Divide batter equally among the muffin tins. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before frosting.

  • To make the cream cheese frosting, combine the softened cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and carrot shavings in a medium bowl; stir until well blended.

  • Slice muffins in half, spread with the cream cheese frosting, and then sandwich together. Serve warm or at room temperature.
