Tasty Tuesday Morning Glory Muffins!

Donna sent me this recipe a while back, and since the Cat Master has done nothing creative in the kitchen for some time now, I was glad to have it ready to go!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins (Healthy Recipe) That My Men like

"These easy and tasty muffins are a glorious way to start any day. They combine the great taste and chewy texture of carrots with the wonderful flavors of apple, raisins, coconut, walnuts, and cinnamon." Cook Time: 20 Min Ready In: 45 Min. Makes 12


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 apple - peeled, cored and shredded
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (Substitute 1 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the carrot, raisins, nuts, coconut, and apple.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into the carrot/flour mixture, just until moistened. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
  5. Butter them up and enjoy!


  1. Oooooh My. This must be non-underwear week. His muffins are glorious too.

  2. Those muffins sound amazing. And I love baking. And I think I have all those ingredients too.

    And those buns, the straps, the picture overall, it makes you want to touch and explore.

  3. I was expecting a great recipe, which we got, but the muffin surprise picture, I was not expecting. It was a very pleasant way to start the morning. I'll try the other muffins this weekend! lol

  4. Good morning, ladies! Glad you're enjoying the muffins. Later on, I show you the other side of the studmuffin, though it's not quite as munchable as the back!

  5. Delicious muffins.
    I love to start my day with a cup of tea and some hot muffins.



  6. I'm so glad you're enjoying the muffins. They're so Chewy and Yummy. Lisa, remember this time. Eat around the straps. You don't want another trip to the dentist.

  7. Well, as impressive as this view is from the back-I to admit my extreme curiosity about what might be going on in the front.....

    Thanks for the tip Donna! I think I'll take a break today. Oddly enough-I have a dentist appointment-but only for a cleaning! I'll check back later and see if there are any leftovers!

  8. ooops, I guess I should read all the posts before I post....didn't see Cheryl's post about the flip side.

    ....too bad about that!

  9. Yeah, the front shot covered up all the tasty dangly bits, but we must take what we can get....

  10. What a nice, compact, well framed ass!
