Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3  cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used melted coconut oil)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 3 large carrots, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup  unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of the muffins, optional (I added this)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 18 standard muffin tin cups with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the oil, eggs, and pineapple. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Using a spatula, stir in the carrots, raisins and coconut. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each three-quarters full. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar, if using.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Note-the muffins will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. You can also freeze them for up to 1 month.
