Sunshine Morning Muffins

Morning muffins

These muffins are a great start to any day – they are always delicious right out of the oven, but if possible, even better the next day.

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 1/4 cups unbleached flour

1 tbsp. cinnamon

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut

3/4 cup dried fruit – cranberries, blueberries or raisins

1 large apple, peeled and grated

1 cup minced pineapple (or canned, crushed, if you want to make it easier!)

2 cups grated carrots

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

3 large eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 – bake in the lower 1/3 of the oven

Whisk together: sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in large bowl.

Add coconut, dried fruit, apple, pineapple, carrots and nuts – stir well.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs with oil and vanilla.  Pour into the bowl with dry ingredients and stir until blended.

Spoon batter into muffins tins – either lined with muffin cups or greased well.  Fill to the brim.

Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for about 10 min before removing.
