These turned out so good, I just had to share! They are packed with fruits, nuts, spices, and even a veggie. It's like an entire meal in a muffin. :o) Ok, so maybe you will have to eat something else with it but they are really good!
2 1/2 c. sugar
2 c. oil
4 c. grated carrots
1 c. coconut
1 c. raisins
1 c. chopped nuts
2 c. grated apples
4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. cinnamon
4 c. flour
Stir all ingredients together. Make as many muffins as desired, baking at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Note: This recipe makes quite a lot of batter. Extra batter will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks!
Yields: 4 dozen muffins.
I made a half a batch and baked them all in two mornings. The first day will take a while in prep to get all the ingredients shredded, chopped, together, and mixed, so allow yourself a good hour or so from start to finish. But then the next day(s) are super easy! Just pour however many muffins you want and bake! Or do like I did and bake them all in just a couple/few days.
These also freeze well! Bake them up, allow them to cool and then store in a freezer bag in the freezer. When ever you want them for breakfast or a snack, pull out the number you need and pop in the microwave for about a minute or in the toaster oven for a couple minutes.
Serve with butter or just dry and enjoy!
