Morning Glory Muffins

This is a yummy muffin recipe that when adapted is also healthy. It may be a bit of work up front (not much really), but I double the recipe, then put the dough in seperate baggies and stick them in the freezer, then pull them out whenever, stick them in the oven and you have fresh muffins. Gabe LOVES them!

2 cups flour (I usually do at least half whole wheat flour)
1 1/4 cups sugar (I usually do about half of this)
2 tsp. baking soda (I add more if freezing)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups grated carrot (easy if you have a food processor)
1/2 cup raisins (or craisins ar fun too)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 apple, peeled, cored, grated (use food processor)
3 eggs
1 cup olive oil (i usually use half applesauce and half oil)
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in carrot, raisins, walnuts, coconut and apple. In seperate bowl beat eggs, oil, vanilla. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until combined. Spoon into well greased muffin cups. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Makes ~16 muffins.
