Morning Glory Muffins

Lots of yummy ingredients make up these muffins. These are a kid favorite at my house.


4 C Freshly ground White WW flour (GF- Pamela's Baking Mix)
2 1/2 C Sucanat
4 tsp Baking Soda
4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 C Carrots, shredded
1 C Pineapple, crushed w/juice
1/2 C Raisins
1/2 C Craisins
1/2 C unsweet flaked coconut
1 apple,peeled, cored & shredded
3 eggs
1 C Virgin Coconut Oil (emulsified w/egg)
1 1/2 C unsweet applesauce
2 tsp Vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together flour, sucanat, baking soda, cinnamon & salt. Stir in carrots, raisins, coconut & apple.

In a separate bow, beat together eggs & oil until emulsified, add then mix in vanilla. Stir eggg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture just until moist. Do not overmix or your muffins with be too dense and tough.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Great with cream cheese frosting

Sucanat is just a more natural form of sugar.

Sometimes it is called.... Muscovado or Rapadura too. Some use raw cane sugar or you could use just plain white sugar. Any "dry" sweetener can be used.

I am sure honey could be substituted too but they you would have to reduce some of the liquid too :) Hope that helps.

It made about 22 for me. But my kids were helping so some were BIG and some were SMALL. I would say it is a standard 24 muffin recipe.
