Clam Chowder Muffins

Looking at batter for muffins:

Sophie, "That looks like clam chowder."

Me, "What?!"

Sophie, "I don't know why I said that."

Remember the carrot pulp from my juicer?  It totally works in muffins.  I zested the oranges before I juiced them and the zest went into the muffins as well.  Should I call these Don't Throw That Away Muffins?

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup sugar

2 cups carrot pulp (or grated carrots)

1 cup dried fruit (I used cherries)

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

2 TBS. orange zest

3 eggs

1 cup oil

2 tsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, then add carrots/fruit/nuts/zest/sugar

In another bowl beat eggs, then beat in oil and vanilla.  Pour into flour mixture and stir until combined.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cake tester comes out clean.  Makes 11.
