Easy Morning Glory Muffins

So tired to this rainy weather. Where is the sun? It has been grey and/or raining for the last 3 days. And it seems like it's going to be like that until the end of the week :(

Too bad I don't have any of these left!!

allrecipes's Easy Morning Glory Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups white sugar (used 1 cup)
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 (didn't add)
1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1 apple - peeled, cored and shredded
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 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, 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.

Here is sending you a little Florida sunshine.

The muffins look absolutely delightful. Thanks for sharing.

mmmm, those muffins look yummy! Especially since I'm on the bananas, rice, applesauce diet until this stomach virus is gone. Sorry about the clouds and rain. I wish I could send you the sunshine we had today.

These sounds very good. It seems like it is raining very other day here as well. I don't mind the cooler weather, but I'm good on rain at this point.

I made these for my husband last week and they are already gone... all 15 of them! I looked forever to find a version he'd like, and these were a definite hit. Thanks so much!
