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. These breakfast muffins are easy enough to bake when you wake up…and even easier to bake the night before so they’re ready to grab before you start the day!

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

Can I replace the sugar by the monk fruit sweetener?
You can give it a shot!
I don’t see where/when to add the orange zest – did I miss it? I stirred it in with
the carrots, apples, etc. Putting them in the oven now!
My mistake, you’d add it to the carrot mixture!
how many calories etc…??

In the recipe, it calls for 3/4 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup for topping and 1/4 cup mixed into the batter. That is only 1/2 cup. Is 3/4 cup a miss print? If not where does the other 1/4 cup go? Thanks!
That was a typo! I’ll fix that! Thank you!!
I was ready to make the muffins then I realized that I didn’t know what to do with the other 1/4 cup of oats. 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2, not 3/4. So do I put 1/2 c of oats in the topping or 1/2 c in the muffins? Or am I only supposed to toast 1/2 c of oats instead of 3/4 cup? Can’t wait to try these!
You use all 3/4 C for the topping!
Hi! Reading through the recipe for these muffins and want to try them. Do you have a recommendation for a flour that might work if we wanted to do these with gluten-free ingredients?
I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour. It’s awesome!!

YES! I love being sneaky when it comes to the good stuff.
Amazingly delicious! Substituted orange zest with lemon…still worked really well!
That sounds delicious! I’ll have to try it!
