I am a huge fan of morning glory muffins, this recipe is my favorite.  I put a couple of recipes together and came up with these...they are awesome!  -Kristin

2 cups carrots, peeled and grated
1/3 c. crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup wheat bran or germ, optional
3 eggs
2/3 cup vegetable or coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup pineapple or orange juice 

  •  In a small bowl, cover the raisins with hot water, and set them aside to soak while you assemble the rest of the recipe.
  •  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, spices, and salt.
  •  Stir in the carrots, crushed pineapple, coconut, nuts, and wheat germ or bran.
  • In a separate bowl combine remaining ingredients.
