Healthy Muffin Recipes - Morning Glory Muffin Recipe
Our Morning Glory Muffin Recipe is quite a healthy muffin recipe.
The addition of pineapple and raisins to a carrot muffin recipe makes these muffins both good and good for us.
It is a great way to get carrots into the non vegetable lover in your family.
Lightly oil or spray 12 muffin cups or line with paper cups.
Stir flour together with baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg in a medium sized bowl with buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Stir in pineapple.
Pour into flour mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in carrots and raisins. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Yield: 12 muffins
Important Mixing Tip!
The trick to keeping this muffin recipe really tender, as with all muffins, is to mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients really well before combining them, then just mix them together enough to incorporate them. Over mixing will make muffins tough.
