So, now the cat is out of the bag. We do like sweet foods. We just know how to eat them in moderation and with as little additives as possible. The muffin recipe came out of "Moosewood Cooks at Home". It's a good recipe because the base batter does not change. You simply add a choice of apple and nuts, bananas and nuts, or zucchini. I chose the apple because I had a couple apples that appeared too mealy to eat off the core. I used a regular cheese grater to grate the apple, peel included, and nearly shaved my finger a couple of times, too. The muffins came out very pretty and tasted really good. Blueberry muffins are always my favorite, but these are running a close second.
I learned something when I made the muffins: shredded apple has the same texture as shredded coconut, which means my excuse for not liking coconut can no longer be valid cause I have nothing against these muffins. However, I bet you could get away with telling someone there's coconut in them. . .whatever good that would do.
