  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
  • Stir in the carrots, apple, coconut, oat bran and pecans. Blend well so everything is coated in flour, separating any lumps with your hands if necessary.
  • In a separate bowl, place honey, vanilla and olive oil. Whisk well until honey is fully dissolved.
  • Add eggs and beat lightly. Add orange zest and whisk again.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Stir until evenly moistened.
  • Drain the raisins and add them to the mix, stirring gently.
  • Divide the batter among the muffin cups. They will be filled to the top.
  • Bake 5 minutes at 400°F, then lower the temperature to 350°F and bake another 20 minutes.
  • Insert a toothpick in the center of one of the muffins to make sure it comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let muffins cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.

Notes

We are introducing the first and only NUTRITIOUS, LOW-STARCH, GLUTEN-FREE Morning Glory Muffin with more than 24 Vitamins and Minerals from the energy and power of nature's food.
Here is what you’ll need:
Carrots: A powerful source of beta-carotene for eye health, and adding natural sweetness and moisture to the muffin.
Apples: Contribute a sweet and slightly tart flavour while providing dietary fibre and antioxidants.
cranberries: Little nuggets of concentrated sweetness, and a great source of iron and potassium.
Pecans: A buttery crunch, packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, fibre, and essential minerals like manganese and zinc.
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut: Lends a tropical flair and adds another layer of texture, while offering fibre and healthy fats.
S.M.A.R.T. Blend: An excellent source of superfoods and ancient whole grains, this flour makes our muffins hearty and filling.
Oat bran: A concentrated source of nutrients, including vitamin E, folate, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Baking Powder and Baking Soda: The leavening agent that ensures your muffins rise properly and have a light, fluffy texture.
Salt: Needed to help development to provide structure to the muffins.
Honey: Its natural sweetness is more complex than refined sugar, and provides added antioxidants.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: For its heart-healthy monounsaturated fats which can help lower bad cholesterol.
Eggs: The binding agent that contributes structure to the muffins, and are an excellent source of protein and B vitamins.
Vanilla Extract: For its sweet, aromatic flavour.
