Morning Glory Muffins

These are my favorite muffins I’ve ever made hands down. My mom loved them too which is saying a lot because 1. she’s a chef 2. she’s a tough critic when it comes to my “healthy” eats. 

This recipe for morning glory muffins may be my favorite muffin I’ve ever had actually, if you make one recipe this week make these!! Baby Bowen, mom  and I all had a muffin for breakfast–they’re super satisfying and the moistest muffin recipe I’ve had.

They’re not overly sweet but perfectly balanced with crunch from the walnuts and sweetness from grated carrot and honey crisp apple. I know these muffins will come in handy all week for B’s snacks too, it’s so easy to take a muffin and pouch for snack/lunch on the go!

 

**You can make these grain free by substituting the 1 cup of oats for 1/2 cup coconut flour! 

We’ve had a busy weekend and don’t see things slowly down any time soon–we are moving in a little over a week so I’ll have my work cut out for me! Happy Monday everybody 🙂
