A tasty muffin packed with shredded carrots and apples, raisins, nuts, and coconut. An energizing way to start the day!

"Loved, loved, loved these!! I substituded 1/2 cup sugar for 1/2 cup applesauce to reduce sugar content. Then, instead of raisins, I put dried cranberries, and instead of nuts I put roasted pumpkin seeds!! Absolutely amazing and SO SO hearty & healthy! Thanks for great new addition to my morning routine!"

2 cups All-purpose flour
1 cup Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt
2 cups Carrots; finely shredded
1 cup Apples; finely shredded

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 18 - 2-1/2" muffin cups or line them with paper bake cups.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the carrots, apples, raisins, nuts, and coconut.

In a seperate bowl, stir together the eggs, cooking oil, and vanilla. Add the liquid ingredients all at once to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened.

Gently spoon the batter into the muffin cups until each one is almost full. Bake in the 350 degree oven about 30 minutes or until the top of a muffin springs back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and cool on the rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

For something different, try substituting shredded zucchini for all or part of the shredded carrots.

I add the zest of one orange and the juice from it, as well as, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, currants, golden raisins instead of Thompson raisins, slivered almonds and pecans (about a small handful of each)...actually the possibilities are endless and the results are the same...SIMPLY DELICIOUS
