  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • 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 or 16 regular size muffins.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Tops nicely browned and tops crusty looking.


I bake using a convection oven, may take a bit longer in non convection.
These muffins are very nutrient dense and filling. I always make 12 muffins but if you prefer divide into 16 equal portions.
