1/2 c Cranberries
1 c Grapes (sliced in half)
1/3 c Pecans

MIX WELL:
4 cups Shredded Apples (Peel if you wish, de-core first)
1 c Shredded Carrots
1 c Coconut
1-2 c "Raisens" {you can be very creative with this portion.  And it's very forgiving whether you use 1 cup or up to 2 cups....but some options for ingredients in an amount and combination are: craisins, raisins, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pecans, almonds, wheat germ, dried blueberries, or in my case, more coconut!  I have found that CHOCOLATE CHIPS, unfortunately, DO NOT taste so great with this recipe, but if you must, go for it. Just know you've been forewarned.}

THEN ADD:
4 cups Flour (Wheat, White or a combination is fine.)
2 c Sugar
4 tsp Baking Soda (or 1 1/3 TBS)

1 tsp Salt
1 TBS Cinnamon
1TBS Cloves

 AND LASTLY ADD:
1 1/2 c Oil
1/2 c Milk
1 TBS Vanilla
3 Beaten Eggs

Fill greased or lined (reg or mini- although mini only bake for 12-14 min) muffin tins 3/4 full and bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes.
