    Mmm…you just can't bet the smell of Ikea. πŸ˜‰ These look fabulous! Nothing like a good muffin and a cup of coffee for breakfast! πŸ˜€

    These look delicious! I guess these were the muffins you were eating while researching on Saturday! I love that they have carrots in them–good way to sneak in some veggies in the am!

    The carrots and the apples in the mix make this more palatable. Thanks for sharing. Love these version of breakfast muffins.

    I love your boyfriend's description of the baking smell! Also, I love Ikea apple cinnamon candles. Definitely adding these to my must make list, especially since it's so hard to find a truly healthy muffin recipe…

    So, I tried your suggestion with the applesauce and cutting the sugar. I cut the sugar in half and used unsweetened applesauce (I also snuck in a big scoop of flax seed) and they are delish! Still moist and super yummy! Thanks for the recipe. I am going to pass it on to my sisters!

    Delicious. I cut the sugar to 2/3 cup.

    Can I substitute all purpose flour for the wheat flour?

    Hi Tessa,
    I make Morning Glory Muffins often. We love everything about them. My recipe is a little different from yours in that I add half a cup of chopped dates to the mix and my carrot and apple ratio is a bit different – 375ml grated carrot and 375ml grated apple. My recipe does’nt have any orange juice and the oil is a full cup, but the rest is the same. I like the idea of trying apple sauce instead of the oil. I will definately try that next time. The dates make these muffins super morish, you should try that sometime! I am going to try your recipe as well – nice to know I can make them without the dates as well, because sometimes I just don’t have them in my pantry.

    I am having a blast in the kitchen with all your recipes and my boys are smiling all the way! They are just to happy to taste test everything. It is the winter holidays here in South Africa, so I have 3 weeks to get through with 3 bored boys! So we are experimenting in the kitchen. They love helping to grate, sift en mix! We are having a ball! Thank you so much for helping with all your lovely recipes!
