Morning Glory Breakfast Muffins

Aug 31, 2021 | Breakfast, Food, Sweets

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Have you ever heard of Morning Glory Muffins?  I never did until I saw a recipe from A Family Feast and I knew I had to take a stab at making these muffins.  I’m so glad I did because they were amazing!  I ended up tweaking the recipe a bit and changed the name ever so slightly to Morning Glory Breakfast Muffins.  These were not Mr. TAL’s favorite but my sister and I loved them!  They are sister approved for sure!

I changed out the raisins for craisins and added more vegetable oil and vanilla.  I typically add more vanilla to every recipe and always take out my baked goods a few minutes before the cooking time is up.  This gave these muffins more of a goopy center so I left them in the cupcake tins while they cooled down creating the perfect, spongy, and decadent dessert.  Slather these morning glories with salted butter, pour yourself a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise for a relaxing start to your day.

I used extra large cupcake pans, ordered special cupcake holders from Amazon, and checked to make sure I had all the ingredients.  The recipe says that flaxseed is optional but I chose to include it in the recipe.  With a bag of Organic Simple Truth Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal, I was good to go.  This recipe calls for sugar and flour but honestly tastes so flavorful and healthy.

  • cupcake pans, cupcake holders


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded carrots - or - (3-4 medium carrots, peeled before shredding)
  • 1/2 cup Craisins original recipe calls for raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut (sweetened or unsweetened) I used sweetened
  • 1/2 cup shredded apple (about 1 medium apple, cored and peeled before shredding)
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed (optional) I chose to add it
  • 3 eggs I used Vital Farms cage free organic
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable oil original recipe calls for 1 cup
  • 3 tsp vanilla original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper muffin liners (or grease a non-stick muffin pan)
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt
  • Stir in the carrots, raisins or craisins, chopped walnuts, coconut, shredded apple and flaxseed. Mix until well blended. I used a large spoon to mix
  • In a seperate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and vanilla. Pour the egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture and stir just until moistened
  • Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. (Note: the muffin cups will be very full which is ok as these muffins rise only slightly during the baking process)
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees
  • Take out and serve warm (but these are also amazing room temperature as well)


The muffins will be done when the centers are still slightly soft.  Insert a toothpick into the center.  If it comes out clean, that indicates the muffins are ready to be taken out of the oven.
I normally take mind out a few minutes before done when the center is slightly gooey which is my preference.  
If you like icing on your muffins, try mixing 1 cup of confectioner sugar, 1 8oz cream cheese, a splash of vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of International Delight Sweet Cream and mix well

I love hearing from all of you and do my best to respond to each and every one of you.  I always enjoy your comments, feedback, and suggestions so keep them coming!  If I’ve posted a recipe (for our human and our furry friends) and you try it, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @twoadorablelabs and use #twoadorablelabs​.
