Muffin Monday

Morning Glory Muffins
2 dozen

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups grated carrots
1 medium tart apple, peeled and grated
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. In another bowl, combine eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Stir in carrots, apple, pineapple, coconut, raisins and nuts. Add to dry ingredients and combine until just moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Enjoy!

Where did you get this recipe? I worked a retreat and I was in the "kitchen". We had muffins and the batter came in a huge tub (ordered from a food company). They were called Morning Glory Muffins and seem to be the same as your recipe. They were sooooo good. I'm really excited to try these!

Kristin - I believe this is a Taste of Home recipe, so many of mine are. I hope it reminds you of the retreat muffins! :-)
