Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins are one of my favorite breakfast items. There cannot be a better way of starting a day than with a freshly baked, warm muffin.
Before I started baking, I used to spend a ot of money on buying these outside. Now its a different story. Its fairly easy actually; go through the recipe, you will know what I mean.

Below measurements would yield 6 glorious muffins.

All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Baking Powder: 1/2 tsp
Sugar (brown or white): 1/2 cup (you can also reduce this amount to reduce sweetness)
Cinnamon: 1 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp

Mix all the above dry ingredients in a bowl and keep aside.

Carrots: 1 cup, grated
Apples: 1/2 cup, grated
Walnuts: 1/4 cup
Raisins: 1/4 cup
Flaked Coconut: 1/4 cup (optional)

Mix all these in a bowl.

Oil: 1/2 cup (You can substitute oil with apple sauce for a healthier option)
Egg: 1, beaten
 Vanilla extract: 1 tsp
Mix these in another small bowl.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 D F
2. Line in the muffin pan.
3. Mix all the ingredients (wet should go into dry ingredients).
4. Fill in the muffin liners until full.
5. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
