This is a slightly modified version of King Aruthur Flour's Morning Glory Muffin, a fabulous breakfast food or snack to add a little fiber and protein when you need it during the day.
I use ALL organic ingredients for this, and highly recommend it. What's the point of baking your own healthy foods at home if they contain pesticides and chemicals?
The substitutions here are as follows:
I used Unsweetened shredded coconut, instead of sweetened, believe me, the recipe has enough sweetness going on with the brown sugar, carrots, apple and apple sauce, it doesn't need more.
I also use pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds or wheat germ, and instead of 2/3 cup vegetable oil I use 1/2 cup apple sauce and 3 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil.
Finally, weigh, don't use measuring cups for the flour and sugar. King Aurthur always recommends weighing, and that's because measuring cups are inaccurate. A cup of flour should be 4.25 ounces, but when you scoop flour you compact it, and the difference is huge. I get around 5 ounces per cup when scooping, which in this recipe would give me an extra 1/2 flour. That makes the muffins too dense and dry. Always weigh your flour, it's what the best bakers recommend. : )
Adapted slightly from Alton Brown's Blackberry Grunt Recipe
I changed the recipe a bit, used 3/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour. I didn't make the ganache in the recipe, instead, I used some nutella.
