Muffins are "in." They make a great snack all by themselves or a tasty addition to any meal. Either way, you'll feel great giving your family some homemade goodness.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups, all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Granulated sugar for topping
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt.
     
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except granulated sugar; mix well.
     
  4. Add carrot mixture to flour mixture, stirring until moistened.
     
  5. Line 24 muffin cups with paper baking cups; spoon mixture into cups. Sprinkle tops with granulated sugar.
     
  6. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

look good but wondered if these can be done without the coconut or nuts

i would omit the granulated sugar and frost them with a vanilla cream cheese frosting, also i would like to add some raisens to the batter. yummy

I WOULD LIKE IT BETTER IF WE OMITTED THE COCONUT.
