These are the BEST Morning glory muffins. They are soft and moist with the perfect amount of spice. They make an easy healthy breakfast on the go!

I lightened these muffins up by replacing the vegetable oil with coconut oil and apple sauce. I also reduced the sugar and used honey in place of the granulated sugar. Maple syrup would work well too!

How to make morning glory muffins

  • Start by combining flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine honey or maple syrup, coconut oil, applesauce, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Fold in apples and carrots.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients making sure not to over mix. Fold in walnuts and shredded coconut.
  • Divide batter among muffin tins filling each almost to the top. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  • Let cool in pan for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for making morning glory muffins

  • Just like my carrot cake recipe I suggest shredding up the carrots and apples in a food processor versus a grater. It saves a lot of time and is less of a mess.
  • Raisins or flax seed would also be great additions to these muffins!
  • I used all purpose flour in this recipe. You can use a mix of half all purpose and half whole wheat if you prefer or you can use just whole wheat flour.

Can I freeze morning glory muffins

Yes! To store place cooled muffins in an airtight container or ziplock bag. These muffins can be stored for up to 3 months in the fridge. To reheat I recommend microwaving them for 30 seconds.
