I've been tweaking this recipe I found in the SF Chronicle way back in 1994 and have adapted it to get rid of the white sugar and make it a bit healthier. They're great on a rainy Sunday morning, like today. Drop me a comment if you try them!
Healthy Morning Glory Muffins
2 granny smith apples, peeled and grated
1 cup shredded carrots (always use organic!)
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pitted dates (from whole dates)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (I use unsweetened organic)
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup corn oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 small or 18 large muffin cups with canola spray.
Sift together the dry ingredients. Add the fruit and stir very thoroughly, making sure there are no big clumps of fruit.
Beat the eggs until combined and add to it the rest of the wet ingredients, stir until well incorporated.
Add to the dry ingredients and stir until there are no visible dry spots.
Spoon into muffin cups. Bake 22-26 minutes until the muffins are brown and a tester comes out clean.
Let cool for 10 minutes in the cups before moving them to cooling rack.
