"These easy and tasty muffins are a glorious way to start any day. They combine the great taste and chewy texture of carrots with the wonderful flavors of apple, raisins, coconut, walnuts, and cinnamon."

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour / ( I did half with Whole Wheat) 
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped walnuts  ( We have nut allergies - so I left these out ) 
1/2 cup Harvest Heatlh Foods unsweetened flaked coconut  
1 apple - peeled, cored and shredded
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Grease 12 muffin cups*, or line with paper muffin liners.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrot, raisins, nuts if using, coconut, and apple.
In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture, just until moistened. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

** I doubled the recipie and had plenty of batter to make 36 muffins.
