Calories: 413kcal



  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups grated carrots
  • 1 medium tart apple shredded
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup flaked unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts


  • Line a jumbo or standard muffin pan with paper liners and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In large bowl, whisk together both flours, the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Add the applesauce, oil, and vanilla and stir just until combined. Stir in the carrot, apple, raisins, coconut and walnuts until just blended. 
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared cups, filling them ⅔ full. Bake until set and a cake tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 30 minutes for standard size and 40 minutes for jumbo. Set the pan on a rack to cool for 5 minutes, then remove the muffins to the rack to cool completely.


Store the muffins airtight at cool room temperature for up to 3 days.
To enjoy these muffins warm, wrap them in foil and heat in a 350°F. oven for about 10 minutes.
