  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 7 ounces (spoon and sweep)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup flaked coconut

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350 F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and oil. Stir in chopped apples, pecans, and coconut.

  4. Stir apple and egg mixture into dry ingredients just until moistened.

  5. Fill greased and floured muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
