Nutty Apple Muffins Recipe

I teach quick-bread making for 4-H, and I'm always on the lookout for good new recipes. My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me for a slightly different kind of muffin. With apples and coconut, they are moist, chewy and tasty. -Gloria Kaufmann, Orrville, Ohio

"Interesting - I agree the ratio was a little heavy on the "add ins". I also added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 2 more tbsp of milk. This made 12 nice sized muffins and everyone enjoyed the taste and texure - will make again."

"Ratio of fruit & nuts to flour must be incorrect. Not enough batter for 3 1/4 cups of fruit & nuts. I reduced the coconut, raisins & walnuts to 1 cup instead of 1 3/4 cups and filled my baking cups to the top - yield was 11. Also added cinnamon. Not a recipe I'd try again."

"I have three apples trees in my backyard and I was searching for different recipes using apples. This is one of the best recipes I've tried. I received my compliments on the muffins. I did however, make some changes and additions. I replaced 1/2 cup of all purpose flour with a 1/2 cup of whole wheat pastry flour. I also added 1/2 cup of golden raisins to the recipe. They were a delicious addition to the flavor of the muffin."
