Morning Glory Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup ground flax meal
  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 2/3 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 large apple, grated
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flax meal.  Add the carrots, pineapple, coconut, and apple and stir to combine.  Add the eggs, applesauce, and vanilla and stir to combine.
  3. With a cookie scoop, divide the batter among two 12-cup muffin tins, 1/2-full.  Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.  Let the muffins cool on a rack for 10 minutes and then turn them out to cool for another 10 minutes.
