Quick And Easy Morning Glory Muffin Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is a quick and easy morning glory muffin recipe, do you love muffins as much as I do? Any homemade muffin rocks, right? I bet you can smell them coming out of the oven right now! Well, I had never heard of a morning glory muffin until one day when I was teaching a class a few years ago right here in St. George, Utah. Someone by the name of Faye brought me two Morning Glory Muffins! I was so excited to try one because they looked delicious, and was thrilled that she brought me the recipe. I asked her if the recipe was an old family recipe. She said the recipe was from her daughter. Faye mentioned they freeze really well. She makes a batch and microwaves them after removing them from the freezer.

My husband loves these as a dessert after dinner, or as part of a breakfast.  He’s taken them with him to share with his golf buddies, and they really look forward to enjoying them instead of the usual granola bars.  When you consider the fruit and nut ingredients these are good for you too. Do you have busy mornings and you just want to make a quick breakfast? These taste even better the second or third day. They are so moist and are perfect for a run out the door breakfast.
I modified the recipe a bit because I wanted to use freshly ground whole wheat flour.  What kind of fruit or veggie would you like in your whole wheat muffins? What would be your favorite nut/s to add to these yummy muffins?

    These look and sound wonderful. I’ve printed it out and am off to the kitchen to grind some flour. I have everything except the apple, so I’m going to substitute pineapple. That should be good with the carrots, coconut, and raisins, too. Friday, when I’m at work, I’ll grab an apple or two (the ones we have are pretty small) and make more with the apple. I’ve been off work the last couple of weeks due to a back injury, but I am returning Friday.

    Hope your having a great day and keeping cool! Hugs, Mare

    Linda, just had to tell you I made these muffins this week and they were GREAT! Even my very picky husband loved them! I was curious to see if they were really still just as good 2-3 days later and the were. We just finished the very last muffin and they were pronounced a ” keeper” recipe! Thanks so much!
