#93 Morning Glory Muffins

These muffins and the recipe were brought over to me by my birth doula (C. Daschuk) shortly after the birth of my daughter. They are nutritious and filling….great for a snack when up in the middle of the night for feedings!
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup white sugar (or other sweetner such as honey)
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup zucchini
  • ½ cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sesame seeds, roasted
  • ½ cup raisins or dired cranberries
  • ½ cup pecans or walnuts
  • ½ cup coconut extract
  • 1 apple, peeled and grated
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
1. Sift together the first 7 ingredients.
2. Add the next 8 ingredients.
3. In a separate bowl combine eggs, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture.
4. Spoon into muffin cups or right into the greased muffin tin. Bake at 350F for 15-25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean.
(Serves --)
If you do not have ½ cup of buttermilk you can use ½ cup milk with ½ tbsp of vinegar added to it.

Feel free to play around with this recipe. One time I made it when I didn't have zucchini. I just added more carrot and apple.
