Morning Glory Muffins Recipe

Find yourself getting hungry around 11 a.m. every day? Fiber-rich morning glory muffins—originally conceived by Nantucket chef Pat McKinstry in 1978—are the satisfying breakfast you need. Our version is moist, slightly decadent, and packed with carrots, raisins, walnuts, and sunflower seeds to keep you going until lunch. Simple Mills Banana Muffin Mix gives the grain-free batter just enough sweetness—and makes this recipe incredibly simple to whip up!
