My family loves to eat these on holiday breakfasts when all of our relatives get together. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: Pure substances are white sugar (C12H22O11), baking soda (NaHCO3), salt (NaCl). Some homogeneous mixtures are ground cinnamon, grated carrots, peeled and grated apples, flaked coconut, pitted and chopped dates, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Some heterogeneous mixtures are chopped pecans and eggs. The ingredients being mixed in a bowl, scooping the muffin batter, and lightly oiling the muffin pans are physical changes.The new smell the muffins make when they are cooked and the solidifying of the muffins from batter to solid in the oven are signs of chemical changes. 227 calories, 3.1 g protein, 32.2 carbohydrates, 10.2 g fat, 35 mg cholesterol, 232 mg sodium, 118 mg potassium
