Ingredients

    1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour or oat flour
    1/2 cup Splenda
    1/4 cup packed natural brown sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs or equivalent egg beaters
    2/3 cup fat free plain yogurt
    1/3 cup crushed pineapple
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 Fuji apple, cored, peeled and diced
    1/2 cup seedless raisins (optional)
    1 cup grated carrots
    1/4 cup plus 4 teaspoons dried flaked unsweetened coconut, divided
    1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped






Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, Splenda, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; break up any brown sugar lumps with your fingers or a wooden spoon. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt and pineapple and vanilla, then add to flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add apples, carrots, 1/4 cup of the coconut and optional raisins, walnuts, and stir gently until well combined. Spoon batter into 16 greased muffin tins filling each about 2/3 full. Top evenly with remaining 4 teaspoons coconut and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
Note: you can easily make your own oat flour by finely food processing old fashioned dry oats.
