Carrot cake muffins

I love carrot cake.. in all it's  carrot, coconut, pineapply goodness, and I love muffins..  So why not put the two together and make these delicious things...

I use cupcake liners to make things easier, but you can grease and flour your muffin tins as well. You can also add chopped pecans or nuts to this recipe.  I am also thinking I should make a cream cheese glaze to drizzle over these next time I make them... YUM .  I made 12 large muffins, you can make smaller ones, I fulled the muffin tins heaping to the top. These do not really puff up and spread like most muffins do.  I smooth out the tops with the back of a spoon before baking.

I used a lot of coconut.  If you don't like them really coconutty, use less.  I also used pineapple tidbits, but you can use crushed, chunked you get the idea.

How every you make these....make them today... Enjoy

Carrot cake muffins

1 box carrot cake mix, dry
1/2 cup  pineapple ( I used tidbits)with it's juice
 1/2 cups shredded coconut
2 T water
1 15 oz can pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350.  Put cupcake liners in cupcake/muffin tins.   Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Scoop into prepared muffin tins (see above).  I baked for 38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (they will look underdone slightly but they are cooked).   Enoy
