Easy to make, hearty, and healthy Morning Glory Muffins packed with goodness, they're good enough for breakfast.
Every Valentine's Day I try and bake something, it's just my way to make someone feel special.
This year I decided to go healthy and bake Morning Glory Muffins. They aren't your typical V-Day dessert, but they are healthy, packed with goodness, and perfect for breakfast.
These Morning Glory Muffins are made with whole wheat flour, they're dairy-free, and made with just 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Surprise your significant other this Valentine's Day weekend and bake these Morning Glory Muffins. They are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee.
Split in half when they are hot out of the oven and top it with some butter or jam. They're so good.

Hey what can I substitute apple sauce with? Can I use apple puree instead?
I would chop an apple and cook it down on the stove, and essentially make applesauce with no added sugar. If you have an apple, please google how to make applesauce. Apple puree - the texture may be off.
Ohh, can I substitute apple sauce with anything else?
You can use some kind of baby food, like carrot baby food, preferably unsweetened. Else i would substitute a flavorless oil about 1/4 cup, but then it's added fat. 🙂
These turned out so well. My toddler loved them. Thanks for a healthy and yummy recipe.
Awww you're welcome. So glad your kid enjoyed it. 🙂
Can I use regular whole wheat flour instead pastry flour?
Sorry for the delay, Mila. Yes you can, however the texture won't be as light using whole wheat flour. Try it, let me know. 🙂

Hi - I am sorry in advance for this question - but can I use refined sugar instead
Absolutely Waheeda. You may. And use the same amounts. 🙂
