I’ve had this recipe for Morning Glory muffins on my pinterest page for sweets for zee lonnnggest time. The crack of dawn this morning seemed appropriate to whip it out. I don’t really remember my dreams, but I swear I must constantly dream about food bc I JUMP out of bed sometimes to make things. Or I can’t fall asleep until I’ve made them. This week has been a King Arthur Flour week for me. I am SO in love with the recipe page on their website, 100% because of the reviews.
I have so much trust for those recipes and am really into their white-wheat flour lately, it’s great for those medium-grainy recipes. One night I couldn’t fall asleep without having milk and cookies, so I burst out these guys way past my bedtime. So worth it, they were so soft and delicious…brought them to work and got some validation.
So, what’s with the title? In my head, I keep saying “good morning lord” muffins instead of “morning glory.” There was this teacher at my high school who started every prayer with “Good morning, Lord” and if you ask anyone from our school who says that phrase, I promise they would recognize it. This one goes out to you, Mr. Lorys, for fully engraving the phrase Good morning Lord in my memory forever. I WILL NOW always make this recipe because ITS SO GOOD.
And you know I often get mad because my muffins never get really muffiny, they look like cupcakes sometimes, but these look like big-ole regular muffins. Without further adue, here’s the recipe for Morning Glory aka Good Morning Lord muffins. I followed most of the recipe, using sweetened coconut and walnuts like the recipe suggests. However, I mixed up some walnuts with pecans bc that’s what I had on hand. Also, I used half brown sugar half splenda and followed some people’s recommendations, cutting the sugar by about 1/4 of a cup.
carrots, apples (diced not grated) nuts, coconut
