Morning Glory Muffins


Morning Glory Muffins are delicious and such a treat to have for breakfast or as a snack.

The combination of shredded carrots and raisins works so well in these muffins, as the outside is slightly crunchy but the inside is soft and moist.

This recipe is adapted from the Morning Glory Muffins recipe from Martha Stewart.

A lot of recipes for Morning Glory Muffins include additional fillings like shredded apples, coconut flakes, almonds, and/or walnuts. Feel free to include any fillings that you enjoy!

Morning Glory Muffins


Add a small amount of rolled oats to the top of each muffin before putting them into the oven for a crunchy topping.

After baking for 23 minutes, poke a toothpick into the tallest muffin and check that it comes out clear to make sure the muffins are baked all the way through.
