    turtlepants's Note:

    This recipe is the hybrid morning glory muffin recipe that I have developed, after making many different recipes that either had a tonne of oil in them, or were much sweeter than I care for. These are very tasty and have less oil and sugar than some other recipes.

    1. 1
      Preheat over to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      On a baking sheet, spread a layer of coconut and sunflower seeds. I placed coconut on one side and sunflower seeds on the other, but ended up mixing them together lated on. These will toast very quickly, so make sure they don't burn!
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, you can start grating the apples and the carrots. Place in a large mixing bowl, and add raisins to the mixture. When the coconut and sunflower seeds are toasted, put 3/4 of them in with the apples and carrots, and reserve 1/4 for a topping. In the same bowl, mix in the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil.
    4. 4
      In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Next, add the whole wheat flour, all of the spices, brown sugar, and cane or white sugar, mix thoroughly.
    5. 5
      Put in lined paper muffin cups, and bake in pre-heated oven for ~15-20 minutes. They are done when a toothpick comes out clean.

      Very good! Just the right amount of sweetness and spices. I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins. You seem to have left out a step between 4 and 5. ( Mixing the wet and the dry and topping the muffins.) :) The sunflower seeds didn't stay put on top and I think I would just put all of the coconut and seeds into the mix next time. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
