When we were eating these for the first time and talking about all of the things inside them, Zachary started joking that there was chicken, broccoli, and tables and chairs in the muffins, too. Not so much, but there definitely is a lot of stuff in there!

I’ve been wanting to make morning glory muffins for a while, and I’m so glad I finally got around to them.  I already had every ingredient on hand to make these (for some reason, I always have a random partial bag of coconut in the freezer, it seems), so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. These nutritious whole wheat muffins are packed with carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, and walnuts. They make a great breakfast or quick snack, and for that reason, went very quickly in this house. I did manage to freeze a few, and was very happy a couple weeks later when I remembered they were in the freezer.

These are a pretty healthy muffin as-is, but I made them a little better for you by reducing the amount of sugar, and also replacing some of it with honey. I also cut down on the oil but retained the moistness by adding some unsweetened applesauce. I don’t think the muffins suffered one bit from these changes. I think you’ll agree!
