Easy Morning Glory Muffin Recipe

Weekday mornings are busy…they’re stressful…let’s be honest: they are nothing less than chaotic! Getting yourself ready for work is hard enough, and then you have to get the kids ready too. It’s basically a mad dash to get out the door, so those fancy breakfasts are not an option.

If you manage to cook a nice big breakfast for your family every morning, I applaud you! But a quick, easy breakfast that you can eat on the go is more realistic for a lot of us. That’s why I love these morning glory muffins.

How to Make Morning Glory Muffins

I love how simple this morning glory muffin recipe is. In just a little over 30 minutes, you can have hot and fresh muffins ready to eat!

  1. Start by toasting up the oats for 8-10 minutes at 350°F.
  2. Mix 1/4 of those oats with melted butter to make the topping and set aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.
  4. In another bowl, mix together carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, pecans, and 1/4 cup toasted oats.
  5. Combine the flour mixture and carrot mixture.
  6. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla extract, and oil, then combine it with the other mixture.
  7. Scoop the batter into a regular sized muffin tin, and top each one with the butter/oat mixture.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F.

Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes before removing them. These taste great whether served hot or cold. Eat them right away, or store them in an airtight container or resealable bag and save them for the morning. these breakfast muffins will stay fresh for a few days.
