Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrot, raisins, nuts, coconut, and apple.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture, just until moistened. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

FYI... You can make these a lot healthier by replacing the oil with APPLESAUCE and using all whole wheat flour. Some recipes work with these subsitutions, some don't... but my friend made the healthy version of these for me, and I couldn't stop eating them!!! (so in the end, the nutritional value was probably the same since I was a muffin hog, but you get the point) TASTY!!!

I cut out the the oil almost completely using only a 1/4 cup, and 3/4 unsweetened applesauce. Omitted the raisins and coconut, and replaced it with dried currants, and dried blueberries and dried cranberries. Excellent. FYI : 2 cups of grated carrots = 2 medium sized carrots:)

This is the second time I made these--this time I reduced the oil to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup of applesauce. They were still very moist and delicious. I also reduced the coconut by half to reduce the fat content. I grated everything by hand, so the prep time was more like 30 minutes (but still worth the work). Next time I will double the recipe and use a food processor. I ended up with 18 standard size muffins. They were a big hit with the family.
