Apple Beet Muffins

Hands down the best muffins I've had, though they remind me a bit of
bread pudding. Moist, sweet and full of texture.
I love that it has so much going on with the apples, beets, raisins, coconut...
but all ingredients complement each other so well.

These are best the day of, if you do have any left overs, refrigerate.
