Morning Glory Veggie Muffins are the perfect way to kick off your morning. This slightly sweet, hearty and healthy muffins has everything you need and want in a great breakfast muffin recipe.
Muffins have gotten a bad rap as a breakfast food. I understand why; store bought options are often huge with lots of calories and not much nutrition to back them up. As a muffin lover, I want to change this.
If you've followed MHE over the years, you know that I have a pretty tasty archive of muffin recipes that quite frankly, I'm rather proud of. (Check out all my Healthy Muffin Recipes here.)
This Morning Glory Veggie Muffin is inspired by the one that used to be at Starbucks. I discovered it on a business trip and was smitten by all the goodness that was going on inside. (BTW, pairing it with their delish Sous Vide Eggs made for a great travel breakfast.) But they have since discontinued this magical muffin and that inspired me to make my own healthy muffin recipe version at home to share with you.
This one took a few tries to get it just the way I wanted. I enlisted many taste testers (thank you friends and family) to make sure this wasn't a one-sided experience. When I won Coach over, I knew I had hit the nail on the head.
Hidden in these Morning Glory Veggie Muffin bad boys are some deliciously, wholesome ingredients like walnuts, golden raisins, shredded carrots, and shredded apples. Uh! So, so yummy guys.
How to Eat Morning Glory Veggie Muffins for Breakfast
To make this into a complete breakfast to sustain your energy, try one of these pairings:
- 1 muffin + 1-2 hard boiled eggs
- 1 muffin + Greek yogurt
- 1 muffin + tofu scramble
- 1 muffin + protein shake of choice
- 1 muffin + piece of tempeh
- 1 muffin + 2 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 muffin + small smoothie
- 1 muffin + chia pudding
- My favorite piece of equipment for making muffins is a trigger ice cream scoop. It makes loading up the tin easy and mess-free. Plus, it makes all the muffins even in size.
- I used white whole wheat flour for this recipe. It's pretty easy to find at any grocery store and is not as heavy (meaning no hockey puck muffins here) of a flour.
- These freeze beautifully. Simply store in an airtight container (or this amazing Stasher bag works great). Microwave from frozen for about 15 seconds. Then cut in half and microwave again just until not frozen, about 20 seconds or so.
I really hope you will try this recipe for Morning Glory Veggie Muffins. They are a favorite around here and I hope they will be for you too.Print
