Morning Glory Muffins

Ideal for a quick grab-n-go breakfast, these Morning Glory Muffins are filled with fruits, carrot and loads of delicious flavour.

Morning Glory Muffins

I first discovered the sensation that is Morning Glory Muffins when I was aboard a Carnival Cruise in the middle of the ocean. Someone asked me if I’d tried the ‘Morning Glory’ yet, and I wondered if they were being a little dirty… but as soon as I pulled my mind out of the gutter I realised that they were talking about the delicious muffins in the breakfast buffet.

They’re a yummy treat filled with apple, carrot, sultanas and coconut, and the perfect hint of cinnamon. They’re so easy to make, but best of all they sit across any meal. They make a satisfying breakfast on the run, or a warm snack during the day.

Muffins are great, versatile snack. They’re great for breakfasts, or lunch box fillers. My family loves choc chip muffins, banana muffins, and triple chocolate muffins.

And I mean, they’ve got carrot in them… so they’re practically a salad. Right?

Tips for making Morning Glory Muffins:

They’re best eaten warm. You can either eat them hot out of the oven, or reheat in the microwave or even in the air-fryer. Preferably lathered in butter.

Swap sultanas for dates, if you prefer. Apricots would work well too.

1/2 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
