Mimsy's Hippie Muffins

Loaded with nuts, fruit, carrots and whole wheat... one of these hippie muffins is a meal by itself.

2 cups whole wheat flour (I grind my own from wheat kernels)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup shredded apple
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup canola oil (or other heart-healthy oil)
1/4 cup milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten

Heat oven to 350ºF. Oil 12 muffin cups. Stir together flour and soda. Add other dry ingredients and spices. Mix in nuts and shredded things. Add wet ingredients and stir until wet. Fill muffin cups to 1/2 full, then bake for about 25 minutes or until done.

I called them hippie muffins because of the granola-era ingredients that went into them. Back in the 60s it was heightened time of "nature" awareness, and was popular to throw a bunch of nuts, dried fruit, coconut, and wheat germ into everything.
