these are the best muffins for fall. full of carrots, apples, coconut, walnuts. i do everything as the recipe calls for, but sub half the oil for applesauce, and use spelt flour. and i do not use raisins. so not a fan. i thought i didn't like morning glory muffins, but they are jon's fav. i have made this recipe a bunch of times, and i think i eat more of them than jon now. so good. they taste better than they look, really.
