Recipe Thursday - Morning Glory Muffins

This week's Recipe:
When I went to make these, I was missing some ingredients. I decided to just make them anyway and they turned out great. I can't wait to try them again and use all the ingredients. Perfect breakfast or snack! We gobbled these up all weekend long!

Morning Glory Muffins

2 cups flour (I use half wheat and half white which I think actually makes these muffins better than using just white flour but just use whatever you've got)
1 ¼ cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup grated carrot
1 peeled, grated apple (I use Granny Smith for baking)
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup shredded coconut
3 eggs
½ cup applesauce
½ cup oil**
2 teaspoons vanilla
Optional: 1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, soda, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the grated zucchini, carrot, and apple, chopped pecans and coconut. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla, then add to the flour mixture until combined. I use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into muffin tins lined with paper liners and they should be filled pretty much all the way to the top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

**If you don't have applesauce on-hand, you could do one cup of oil, which was the original recipe, but I promise that using applesauce instead of oil doesn't hurt the flavor or texture of these muffins one bit and it makes them just a little bit healthier.

Makes about 2 dozen muffins and they freeze well for quick breakfasts on the go.

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you! I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!
