Some Really GOOD Muffins

I got a wild hair today and decided to play around with a muffin recipe I have been working on.
I really needed it to be a bit healthy (Pioneer woman is killing me) & I wanted to make a large batch (so I could freeze a bunch). Here it is. I don't know what to call them so if you have any suggestions.......
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer but a regular hand mixer should work too.
I beat 6 eggs, 1 1/3 cup oil & 1 tsp. vanilla.
I added 2 1/2 cups shredded carrots & 1 can crushed undrained pineapple.
Then I threw in 4 tsps. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 2 cups brown sugar, 4 tsps. cinnamon, 2 1/4 cups white flour, 2 cups whole wheat flour & 6 Tbls. wheat germ.
(If you are using a hand mixer you might want to blend your dry ingredients in a separate bowl first and then add to the wet ingredients)
Last but not least, stir in 1 cup chopped walnuts & 1 cup golden raisins.
Bake at 375 for 18 minutes.
Made 32 muffins.
I had one for dessert tonight. They were SOOO good!
