Mega Morning Glory Muffins


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup oil
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • ½ sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream and/or plain yoghurt
  • 1 ½ cups grated/chopped carrot
  • ½ cup coconut
  • 2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup raisins and/or craisins and/or currants
  • 1 apple diced
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease/line muffin trays.
  2. Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl. Add carrots and coconut and mix well.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a separate bowl. Gradually add dry to wet and stir just to combine. Don't overmix.
  4. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  5. Fill muffin trays 3/4 full. Optional: add struezel topping and press before placing in the oven.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes. I increased the oven temp to 400 for the last five minutes of the regular-sized muffins.

I made 1 dozen muffins and 2 dozen mini muffins.
