Really Really Good Muffins

Remember a few posts ago I wrote about carrot cake?   Did I mention that I shredded too many carrots?   This is what I do when that happens.   First of all I measure it out in 1/2 cup increments.  I either cook straight away into these lovelies, throw some of them into soup or smoothies, or just freeze.   Today, I made these delicious guys.

I have made them for years and they are worth the time to shred a couple of apples.  Some restaurants call them "Morning Glory" muffins or "Golden Harvest" muffins.   Call them whatever you want......just call them, maybe?

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups shredded & peeled apples
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional...nuts in baked goods, yuck!....NO THANK YOU!)

*Heat oven to 350*.  Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.

*Combine everything that is dry.
*Combine all the wet ingredients.
*Combine them all together.
*If by chance this looks a little dry...just crack another egg and stir it in.

*Bake for about 25 minutes.

*Serve Warm. Serve Cold.  Just Serve Them.

  1. You should call me, maybe! Haven't talked in a while... and bring some muffins for a visit too. They look yummy. Would the people in my life that don't like carrot cake like these?
