Morning Glory Muffins - The Southern Lady Cooks

These Morning Glory Muffins in the morning with coffee will make for a glorious treat to start the day. They keep well in the refrigerator. You can freeze them and reheat in the oven or microwave anytime you want a treat with milk or coffee. Children love these muffins, too. I love having these on hand to serve family and friends.  You might also like our recipe for cheesy sausage muffins.

Morning Glory Muffins Ingredients:

2 cups grated or shredded carrots

1 cup grated or shredded apple (peel and core the apple)

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

3 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes

3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

Morning Glory Muffins Instructions:

Peel and grate the carrots enough to make 2 cups, set aside. Peel, core and grate the apple enough to make 1 cup, set aside. Cream the butter, sugar and eggs with the mixer. Add vanilla extract, shredded carrots and apples and continue mixing. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add to the creamed mixture and continue mixing. Fold in coconut flakes, raisins and nuts with a spoon. Spray a regular 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Fill cups to just below the top. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes 12 large muffins. Enjoy!

Note: You could add pineapple to these or leave out the raisins or nuts. This is a very versatile recipe and easy to add or delete ingredients. You could make them healthy by using a sugar substitute, unsweetened coconut and try applesauce instead of butter. You could also cut the white flour back and add 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
