Morning Glory Muffins

These are my favourite muffins to get at the Stone Crock bakery in St. Jacobs but do you know what... I can make them just as easily at home. A delightful combination of carrots, apples, coconut and raisins. They were supposed to have nuts (I always use pecans) but I forgot them this time. You can really taste the different ingredients especially the fresh apple.  These are going to be a regular in the rotation now.

Morning Glory Muffins
In a large bowl mix:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Stir in:
2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup nuts
1/2 cup coconut
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated

In a bowl beat 3 eggs, I cup vegetable oil and 2 tsp. vanilla
Stir all together and back at 350 F for 20 minutes or so. I made large muffins, filled the cups right up and it made about 15. I think the oil could be scaled back slightly, the muffin liners were a little greasy but they muffins were light and delicious.
