Morning Glory Muffins

Yet another recipe from mother's recipe book, She was a wonderful cook, and these muffins prove it.  They are filled with coconut, apple, raisins, carrots, and nuts.  They are moist and the recipe makes about 14 large muffins.  She used to make them in larger muffin tins, I used the standard size and got 17 muffins. 

In a large bowl: mix
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

Stir in:
2 cups grated or finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup coconut
1 apple chopped fine

In a small bowl:
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla

Mix this together then add to the large bowl. Mix enough to moisten batter. Grease or use paper liner in muffin tins. Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Timing will depend on the size and amount of batter. The tops should spring back when lightly touched on top of muffin.
