These Morning Glory Muffins are packed with vegetables, fruit, and nuts, creating a delicious breakfast treat or snack.

Kick them up a notch by passing softened butter or cream cheese at the breakfast table. We guarantee that, after one bite, your morning will be full of glory!

Optional: If you wish, use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour is processed less than all-purpose flour to retain more nutrients and fiber, however, it may have a courser texture.

Optional: If you wish, substitute white sugar for brown sugar. Brown sugar isn’t any healthier but it has more of a rich, molasses taste some people prefer.

Remember: This recipe makes at least 36 muffins! If you have extra, just freeze for another day or another event!

4 cups flour
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons baking soda
4 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt
4 cups grated carrots
1 cup raisins
1 cup shredded coconut
2 apples, peeled and grated (Cortland, Empire, Golden Delicious)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
6 eggs
2 cups vegetable oil
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrots, raisins, coconut, apples, and nuts (if using). In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the oil and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and combine well. Spoon the batter into greased or paper-lined muffin tins and bake 35 minutes.
