Muffins are always a favorite to enjoy with a cup of coffee in the morning, especially these morning glory muffins. Tender and packed with flavorful ingredients, we think you’re going to love these muffins just as much as we do.
These healthy morning glory muffins are made with better-for-you ingredients, including Greek yogurt, carrots, and apples. Unlike the original morning glory muffins, these health-conscious muffins are not super sweet.
Instead, these muffins are made with a limited amount of brown sugar and maple syrup. The sweetness is complemented by the apple and carrot, as well as the hint of cinnamon in the recipe.
The key with getting beautiful, bakery-style muffins, whether it’s these morning glory muffins or any other kind of muffin recipe, is to bake your muffins at a high temperature for a brief period, then lower the temperature for the rest of the baking time.
By doing this, you’ll allow your muffins to experience a quick rise in height, giving you that gorgeous bakery muffin top. The oven temperature is then lowered to prevent the muffins from browning too much while the inside of the muffins finish baking.
If you suffer from any nut allergies, feel free to skip the nuts in this recipe. Also, make note that you do not want to overmix the muffin batter, as this will result in dense muffins.
