Sharon, these are terrific! What a lovely muffin experience :). I halved the recipe and it STILL fed me, DH, my son, two girlfriends, and their 3 toddlers. Sheesh! The textures are the best part of these muffins--the apple and carrot make them moist, the coconut and nuts give a little crunch, and the ww flour gives a nice dense toothiness. Terrific. I cut the sugars back to 1/4 c each (for a half recipe), and the coconut I cut to 1/3 c based on personal preference. I also used a bit of oat flour because I had it on hand. I also used 1/4 c applesauce to 1/8 c oil, and I didn't have any problems with dryness or sticking to the pan. Speaking of, I highly recommend using butter-flavored Pam on your muffin tins for that little extra something. Thanks so much for sharing, Sharon! Made for Went to Market.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the eggs, oil, buttermilk, brown and white sugar and vanilla. Sift all dry ingredients together and slowly add to the egg mixture.
  2. Stir in apple, coconut, dates, carrots, nuts and orange rind. Stir until just mixed.
  3. Spoon batter into muffin tins that have been greased. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. This makes about 4 dozen muffins. Enjoy!
