Loaded with carrots, raisins, apples, pecans and flax seed, these morning glory muffins are the perfect, healthy to-go breakfast!

I was really craving muffins for breakfast yesterday, particularly ones with carrots and raisins in them! While I didn’t have a recipe for these type of muffins in my wide ranging muffin arsenal, I knew who would…Pinterest!

I hopped over there quickly and searched for Sunrise Muffins, because that’s what I’ve always called them. Immediately a bunch of various recipes came up, so I did what you’re not supposed to do to a book…I judged the muffins by their photos. I picked one that looked dense and full of lots of ingredients!

The recipe I ultimately decided upon was from Sally’s Baking Addiction, for Morning Glory Muffins. I’ve baked many of her recipes in the past, so I knew this one wouldn’t disappoint.

The muffins were easy to make, even though they have a lot of ingredients. Just think that the more you add, the more food groups you are knocking off in one meal!

The thing I loved most about these Morning Glory Muffins, is that they were not too sweet. I don’t like when you are trying to eat something more on the healthy side but it’s loaded with sugar. These muffins are a definite make again!
