Carrot Apple Coconut Muffins {A Weelicious Recipe}


I am not a magazine "reader;" I am more of a magazine "flipper."  Anyone else like that?  I just like to look at the pictures and maybe read a few short captions.  Well, I was flipping through the April 2013 edition of Parenting magazine and a recipe caught my eye.  I folded over the page to save for later as we didn't have the exact ingredients the recipe called for....

Fast forward several weeks and T and I were working on some school work.  He was breaking up the word muffin in his Explode the Code workbook and he had a light bulb moment:  "We should make muffins after this!!" he said.  And so we did.

While I was searching for the magazine, T had already pulled the milk, flour,and eggs out!  The article featured three recipes by Catherine, who is the master-mind behind the food blog Weelicious.  I have several of her recipes pinned on my food boards and have yet to make them by the way.  But since we devoured these muffins, I think I'll be putting her other recipes on the top of my "must-make" list!

We made 12 regular sized muffins around 3 p.m. and by 6... there were only 3 left!  Ha! You do the math ; )  They were yummy & healthy, too!! (Bonus!!)

I ended up using Olive Oil, instead of Veggie or Canola because that is what we use-- for everything!  I am sure you could also sub in Coconut Oil, too.

And because we made larger muffins, they took longer to bake... maybe 25 minutes?!

Go check out the recipe! Yum!

 I used this handy 6 Piece Grater Set that I purchased from Amazon & I LOVE it!!  It helped immensley in this task of grating carrots and apples!  Otherwise I would have had to slice and chop them up by hand!!
