Best Morning Glory Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Cupcake-Princess

These hearty muffins have everything in them like carrot, apple, coconut, pecans, and raisins. I tweaked a couple of recipes for morning glory muffins and made my own perfect recipe. I put in some whole wheat flour and use less sugar. Serve these moist muffins warm for breakfast. The key to perfect muffins is not to over mix them.

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. It's great! Her recipe calls for salad oil instead of butter. I like to use a light oil like canola or even light olive oil. They freeze nicely too.
