Vegan carrot muffins vs. regular carrot muffins (w/ eggs)

So, for those of you who haven't heard, flaxseed can be replaced with eggs!
I wanted to test it out on this carrot muffin recipe....so I made it twice, using the same exact ingredients, with the replacement of eggs with flaxseed mixture.
3 tbsp flaxseed + 3 tbsp water= 1egg; let it sit for 5 minutes

I made the first batch with eggs, and when I finished making the second batch with flaxseed, the consistency was not as smooth as the first. Hence, I added 4 tbsp of soy milk.
Conclusion is: both tasted similar, vegan muffins were a little more moist than reg. muffins. It might be due to the extra soy milk.
So I have to post the recipe up because I promised some friends that I'd share it w them...
3/4 cup ww pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6tbsp grounded flaxseed+ 6tbsp water
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 tbsp vanilla

*edit post: it will look nicer if I have made some vegan cream cheese frosting, and placed a carrot -shaped fondant on top of the muffin.:)
