Morning Glory Muffins

These muffins are fantastic! My family loves them. I make the giant size muffins for my husband and I and the mini muffins for the kids. This recipe came from my fabulous friend Celia, who also gave me the dynamite cornbread recipe.

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 apple, peeled and grated
2 cups grated carrots (optional)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional - You can add your favorite type of nut!)

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until smooth. Add oil and vanilla and mix. In a medium sized bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until moist. Then add the coconut, apples, carrots, and nuts and stir. Bake in greased muffin cups at 350. For making large muffins, bake for 25 minutes. Regular muffins - 20 minutes. Mini muffins - 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
