Healthier Morning Glory Muffins

Recipe by turtlepants
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 24 muffins




  • Preheat over to 400 degrees F.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
