Pumpkin Morning Glory Muffins

I'm BAAACK! And I have a delicious recipe for a hearty, fibrous, fall-fantastic muffin!
Here's what you need:
2 cups flour (2 all purpose, or 1 bread and 1 all purpose, or 1 whole wheat and 1 all purpose, whatever combination you so desire) I used 1 bread flour and 1 cup all purpose
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg
1 whole carrot (chopped in food processor)
1 apple, peeled and cored (thrown in the food processor with the carrot)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3 eggs
1/3 veggie oil
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 can pumpkin
If you want to, add a little wheat or oat bran, some ground flax seeds, and some steel cut oats. Just for good measure (and extra fiber)
Mix together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Add carrot/apple mix (that was chopped fine in the food processor). Add pumpkin, and oil and mix well.
I like my muffins big, so I greased a BIG muffin pan (holds 6 big muffins). Put it in the oven at 350. If making small muffins, bake for 20-22 minutes. For large ones like I made, it's more like 32 minutes.
Don't these look great!?

HAPPY EATING!
