Rise and Shine!
What makes our muffins so special? Good question! They are full of healthy goodness. Besides our hippied up GF Flour Farm flour, we use ground organic golden flax seeds packed with omega-3 fatty acids, anti-oxidants and fiber. We also use natural sugars such as organic maple sugar, wild local honey, applesauce and orange juice. Shredded carrots and apples provide texture, sweetness and fiber. If you are out of carrots, substitute zucchini. Gums are nowhere to be found in this recipe, yay!

Before You Dive In – Prep: Please read!
- Bring eggs to room temperature (preferred)
- Shred carrots (large grate)
- Shred (large grate) or dice apple
- Soak raisins for about 10 minutes in warm water, then squeeze out water
- Chop pecans (or whatever nut you choose)
- Ground flax (if you only have whole seeds)
- Move oven rack to center
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius)
- Grease muffin wells (we like to use our non-stick baking Goop,) or place muffin liners in wells
Step 1: In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
Step 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until blended.
Step 4: Add the raisins, carrot, apple and coconut to the blend. Fold in ingredients until combined.
Step 5: Spoon or scoop batter into prepared muffin wells. Fill 3/4 of the way full (we use a blue #16, 2 oz scoop).
Step 6: Place muffin pan in the center of a preheated 350 F/177 C oven and bake for 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 7: Remove pan from oven and cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes. Pop muffins out of pan and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
Storing and Freezing: Muffins are best the day you bake them or the day after. Freeze extra muffins in a freezer safe container for up to a month for best results.
