Morning Glory Muffins

What’s your story morning glory?! Morning Glory Muffins!  Just the name alone makes me love these muffins.  The fact that they are loaded with goodness just makes them that much better!
Morning Glory Muffins
I bake a batch of muffins at least once a week.  Especially in the summer and fall when there are so many fruits and vegetables in season locally.  I bake a couple of batches of these Blueberry Oat Bran Muffins in blueberry season, wrap them individually and pop them in the freezer for an easy breakfast on the go!
My version of these delicious muffins bake up nice and high.  They are moist and delicious and never disappoint.  Perfect for breakfast, brunch or packing in a lunch box.  This time I made them with chopped walnuts, but the are equally yummy when sprinkled with a few raw pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top.
If you are anything like me, breakfast is often the last thing on my to-do list in the morning during the busy weekdays.  I love that I can pair a fresh baked muffin with a tall cold glass of milk (dairy on non-dairy) and you have a winning breakfast.  Mornings can be glorious!
Morning Glory Muffins
The thing about morning glory muffins is that they are packed with carrots, banana, pineapple, raisins and delicious spices that give them that comfort food quality.  But, switch out the raisins for dried cranberries, the walnuts for pecans or pumpkin seeds, whatever you have on hand, and you really can’t go wrong!
