I was given the recipe by my dear friend Michelle. She has six kiddos and she's very tricky when it comes to hiding "good" food. So here ya all go!
MOrning Glory Carrot Muffins
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups light brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg white
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 jars (2 1/2 ounces each) strained carrot baby food (she's so brilliant)
1/2 cup fresh carrot or orange juice
4 ounces unsweetened crushed pineapple in its own juice
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut-loosely packed
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray or wipe muffin tins with vegetable oil. Mix the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a large mixing bowl.
Add the oil, applesauce, egg, egg white, vanilla, strained carrots, juice and crushed pineapple and its juices. Mis well.
Fill the muffin tins two-thirds full. Bake for 20 to 25 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Turn the muffins out onto a wire rack. Once cooled, store them in an airtight container.
