Morning Glory Muffins #MuffinMonday

These tender, tasty muffins retain their moistness with the addition of carrot, apple, raisins and coconut.  What a great way to start the day.

Welcome to this month's edition of Muffin Monday......
It's been a couple of months since I've participated in Muffin Monday and I have missed it.  It is pretty sad when life is so busy that you can't find time to throw together some muffins.  They are about the easiest thing in the world.  Muffins take only moment mix up and minutes to bake after which you are rewarded with delicious, portable breakfasts all week long.

These Morning Glory Muffins take just a fraction more time because the carrots and apple need to be shredded.  My food processor made easy work of that in about 20 seconds.

Combine the carrots, apple and coconut with the dry ingredients.

Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry and stir in the raisins.

This recipe makes 6 muffins which is perfect for my family.

Let's take a look at what other muffins are being shared today.......

  1. Morning glory muffins are one of my favorites, Wendy! I don't know how healthy they actually are but I always feel virtuous eating them.

  2. I love small batch recipes! These do sound so virtuous!
