Morning Glory Muffins Recipe

Morning Glory Muffin Recipe

“What’s in the lunchbox mum?” Miss 7 said as she peeked under the lid.  “One of those Early Morning muffins you made yesterday?” she continued.

I stifled a laugh and smiled at her inference.  That would be Morning Glory muffins.

“Yes, the Morning Glory muffins are in your lunchbox.”

I adapted this recipe, that makes about 18 medium sized muffins or over 40 mini muffins, from a comment left on a post I wrote for Coles.  They are hearty and yummy.  Amazing warm. Still delicious cold. There’s something very autumny about them — I think it’s the carrot and cinnamon — and that makes me happy. Fabulous for the lunchbox and while there is a lot of ingredients, the muffins are very simple to make.

Variation

A reader made a healthier variation of these I thought I would add here.

Instead of sugar: use honey and pureed apple

Instead of cooking oil: use coconut oil

Instead of plain flour: use wholemeal flour and oats
