More yummy muffins

I made these the other night, and they came out sooo good :) These tasty muffins are a great way to get some extra fruit, veggies and fiber in your diet. I used a flour combo, but you can skip the wheat flour and wheat germ and just use 1-1/3 cup all purpose flour if you want.

Stef's Morning Glory Muffins

1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (I used a little bit of pumpkin pie spice too)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated apple
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup raisins or chopped nuts (optional)
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil (or use half oil, half applesauce for less fat)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 and grease (I do a quick coat of nonstick spray) 12 muffin cups. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a second bowl, combine carrots, apple, coconut, raisins/chopped nuts, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until batter forms. Spoon batter evenly into 12 muffin cups, then bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
