My son is allergic to nuts so I add protein content with hemp seed and chia seeds. I love using multigrain flour as it adds great taste and a nice crunch to the muffins. This is an amazing breakfast muffin, after school snack or as we call it in our house “Athlete Fuel”. This nutrient dense muffin tastes amazing and fills you up. One of my All Time Favourite Recipes!

Mix together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Add dried fruit, coconut, seeds,raisins, crushed pineapple, apple and carrots. Stir to combine.
In separate bowl whisk eggs with oil and vanilla.
Combine this mixture with dry ingredients and blend well. This will be very thick.
Fill 12 cupcake baking cups heaping full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Tops nicely browned and crisp looking.
I bake using a convection oven, may take a bit longer in non convection.
These muffins freeze really well!
Shredded carrots, apple and well drained crushed pineapple are added to dry ingredients.
Next slightly beat eggs, oil and vanilla together in separate bowl or large measuring cup.
