Muffins are a great breakfast item to grab-and-go when you’re in a hurry. Yet, unfortunately, most muffins are full of sugar and empty calories. Our Morning Glory Muffin recipe allows you to have the convenience of a morning muffin, while keeping it nutritious enough to be a part of your healthy diet. We’ve used almond, coconut, and whole wheat flours, utilized only natural sweeteners like honey and molasses, and filled it with other wholesome ingredients like fruits, nuts, and carrots.

These muffins freeze well, so you can make a large batch ahead of time and reheat for a quick breakfast. Feel free to play around with the combination of fruit and nuts to make it your own!

  1. Oh My Goodness! I just made these this evening and they are Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    I was concerned about the lack of sugar but all of the ingredients come together and compliment each other so well that there is a wonderful natural sweetness. I’ll see how long they last 🙂

    Thank You!

  2. This is hands-down my favorite muffin recipe! I don’t need to do anything different except double this recipe because they don’t last very long. The flavors all blend nicely and the texture is just what I like. My mom didn’t care for the coconut (never has) but I can easily sub those items with something else. Thanks for this recipe!
