Tara’s Version of Morning Glory Muffins

1.5 cups all-purpose flour

1.5 cups unflavoured or vanilla protein powder. (I used Ultimate High Alpha’s unflavoured protein powder)

2 cups sugar, I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup raw sugar.

2 Tbsp. /30ml cinnamon

4 tsp/20ml baking soda

1 tsp /5ml salt

6 eggs

1.5 cups apple sauce

1 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp/10ml vanilla

4 cups grated carrot

2 medium tart apples, grated

2 – 8oz cans crushed pineapple, drained (save the juice for your morning smoothie!)

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup raisins

1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans



Preheat oven to 350⁰, prep your muffin pans.

In a large bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, protein powder, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

In another bowl combine wet ingredients: eggs, apple sauce, oil and vanilla.

Add wet to dry and stir until just combined.

Stir in all other ingredients.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
