Morning Glory Muffins

We've made these muffins many times using the original recipe (found on, but seeing as how we have plenty of zucchini, I substituted one for the apple. It made for a great muffin!

2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins (sometimes we substitute chocolate chips)
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup coconut (optional for Amber!)
1 apple, peeled and shredded (or 1 medium zucchini, shredded)
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffins pans (it makes about 24 muffins). In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, soda, salt and cinnamon. Add carrots, raisins, coconut, walnuts and apple.
In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil and vanilla. Add to carrot/flour mixture, just until moistened. Scoop into muffin cups and sprinkle on a little sugar to add a little crunch. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. My Mom used to make a Zucchini pie, that tasted just like apple pie, with shredded zucchini, it was good! What a great idea to substitute for apple in other recipes too!
