Our entire family loves these easy and delicious Morning Glory Muffins. One of my friend’s moms used to bake these regularly for us in high school and they were a favorite. After spotting the recipe on Money Saving Mom, I adapted it for us. I love that they have some secret nutrition in them. The boys only taste a delicious treat: they don’t know that mommy packed all sorts of goodies inside. Not only are they super easy to make, they freeze wonderfully. That is, if you have any left! I normally make a double or triple batch of this recipe. That way we have some to enjoy immediately, plus more to freeze and eat later.

 

Ingredients for Morning Glory Muffins

 

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and shredded (I have also substituted a pear and loved it)

To Bake Morning Glory Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Distribute evenly in your muffin cups and cake in your preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

To freeze: wait for your muffins to cool completely and then place them in a freezer safe dish or bag. To thaw, leave on the counter for an hour or microwave.
