A rich, moist muffin packed with whole wheat, oatmeal, raisins, carrots, pineapple, coconut, and a cream cheese surprise baked right in the center! Great for breakfast and kids love them! I vary the recipe depending what I have on hand and it always works out great. Hope you enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease muffin tins.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and add white sugar, brown sugar, canola oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix just until evenly moist. Fold in the oats, coconut, raisins, carrots, and pineapple.
  3. In a bowl, blend the reserved pineapple juice and cream cheese. Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 full with the muffin batter, reserving about 1/3 of the batter. Spoon approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the muffin cups. Top with remaining batter, so that each muffin cup is about 2/3 full.
  4. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

What a great recipe! I cut both sugars to a 1/2 cup each, substituted 3/4 cup apple sauce + 1/4 cup oil for the 1 cup oil recommended. They aren't oily at all this way! I have doubled and quadrupled the recipe so I could put a couple dozen muffins in the freezer before and since my son was born. They freeze great! The muffins I've kept out have been moist and delicious. Everyone asks for this recipe. Enjoy!

Yummy, adaptable recipe! I had carrots and oats on hand, but not much else. I omitted all the extra stuff: raisins, coconut, pineapples and the cream cheese addition, and the muffins were moist had a good texture still. I followed the other reviews and replaced some of the oil with applesauce. Even good the next day! Thanks!

I run a kitchen at a retreat center and we have modified this recipe as a coffeecake (we just swirl in the cream cheese before baking). It is one of our most requested recipes. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.
