Morning Glory Healthy Muffin

Mornings can be a stressful time for some families, even in the summer. The no school schedule, although very enjoyable, puts us all in a different morning schedule which can jeopardize the first {and most important} meal of the day.


Best Morning Glory Healthy Muffin Recipe!

Which is why I love making recipes that can be served any time and still be able to provide with fulfillment and nutrition.  BONUS if we can eat on the go! After all, summers are to be enjoyed to the maximum.

Making scrambled eggs three times in the morning, just wouldn’t work very well.  This muffin recipe is perfect because everyone can simply grab one at their own time and enjoy.  The best part is, this recipe is packed with delicious fresh produce such as carrots, zucchini and banana!

Morning Glory Healthy Muffins!

Make no mistake, these muffins were not named “Morning Glory” by accident.  These hearty and healthy muffins are so incredibly delicious, soft and moist! The type of muffin you won’t want to eat only one, but that’s okay because it’s packed with fruits, veggies, oats and raisins !

My first batch flew off the counter and we are now enjoying a delicious variation of my Chocolate Zucchini Bread, which is also packed with deliciousness.  This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffin is another great candidate for the summer-breakfast position.

My point is friends, give yourself a break from the ol’ frying pan and make a batch of this delicious morning glory muffin recipe. Now that you are covered for a couple days, sit back, relax and enjoy the warmer days!

    1. …in another words, food for the body and soul 🙂 Thank you Demeter for your sweet message!

  3. Hi Silvia , these muffins look delicious . I am wondering though how much 1 shredded zuccchini is since my zucchini’s are all different sizes . Any idea about weight or cups?

    1. Thank you so much Colette. I used about 1 cup of shredded zucchini, will adjust the receipt to clear further confusion. Thanks for pointing it out!

  4. These look so good! Would I be able to substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat or oat flour do you think?

    1. Definitely whole wheat, not very familiar with oat flour. Thanks for stopping by, let me know how yours come out!

  5. I’m excited to try this! They look delicious! Can I substitute thethe agave with something else?

    1. Awesome! You can substitute the agave for honey or the sweetener of your choice. Hope you like it!

    1. Thank you for pointing it out Amy. I actually added the oil to the agave, zucchini, carrots and banana mix but you can add to the egg and milk mixture as well. Will fix the recipe index to reflect these changes.

    1. Thank you Anita! I usually find the cutest muffin/ baking liners at Home Goods. I have also purchased similar items at William Sonoma and Sur La Table.
