I made these muffins for a church activity and I fell in love after the first bite. Well, I actually ate 3 or 4. So what? They have wheat germ and oat bran. Can't have enough of that stuff, right? They are super healthy and tasty!

¾ cup sugar
2 cups flour
¼ cup miller’s bran
¼ cup rolled oats
2 Tbs. wheat germ
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
¾ cup flaked, unsweetened coconut
1c. dark raisins
2c. grated carrots
1 apple grated
¾ cup chopped walnuts
3 eggs beaten
1c. vegetable oil
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, bran, oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix coconut, raisins, carrots, apple, and nuts. Add to dry ingredients.
In a small bowl, beat together eggs, oil and vanilla. Add to dry mixture and stir just until blended.

Fill greased muffin tins ¾ full. Sprinkle tops with sugar to create a glaze. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Yields 18-20 muffins.*
* I usually will use the mini muffin tins. They are a great snack size for my kids.
