morning glory muffins

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line standard size 12 muffin tin with paper cups, and grease or line two 1-cup ovenproof dishes (maybe next time i'll try heaping the batter onto the muffin pan, since it didn't rise all that much)
Sift into a large bowl:
  • 2 c. flour (I used only all-purpose, and wouldn't try less than half so they're not too dense)
  • 1/3 c. refined sugar
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
mix in
  • 4 medium carrots, shredded (2 c.)
  • 1 large apple, peeled cored and shredded (1 c.)
  • 1/2 c. raisins
  • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 c. sweetened dried coconut flakes
in another mixing bowl, beat together
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
pour wet ingredients over dry and stir to combine.  scoop batter into muffin cups, and bake 20 minutes, or until a stick poked in comes out clean.
