Glorious Morning Glory Muffins

Last night I decided to branch out from my regular line up of muffins and try something new.  I have this old muffin recipe book, Muffin Mania, that I think I got as a wedding shower gift, but it has some great recipes.  I was flipping through and came across a recipe for morning glory muffins, and I had all of the ingredients so I gave them a try.  They were maybe the most delicious muffins that I have ever eaten, so I thought I should share the recipe.

I didn’t take step-by-step pictures because I didn’t expect them to be so yummy, but the recipe is pretty straightforward.


Morning Glory Muffins
2 c. all purpose flour
1¼ c. white sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
2 c. grated carrots
½ c. raisins (I like to use golden raisins)
½ c. nuts of your choice (I leave these out)
½ c. coconut
1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated
3 eggs
1 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla


In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Stir in carrots, raisins, nuts, coconut, and apple.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs with oil and vanilla.

Stir into flour mixture until batter is just combined.

Spoon into well-greased muffin cups, filling to the top.

Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.

*makes about 16 large muffins!
