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.
I really like carrot muffins, but the first time I tasted them with pineapple added to the mix, I was really sold.
These muffins are amazing. Sweet and delicious as well as quite healthy.
A great way to get the kids to eat their fruit and veggies.
Muffin recipes with buttermilk are also nice and tender.

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 separately and really well before combining them, then just mix them together enough to incorporate the ingredients. Over mixing will make your muffins tough.
Make them Healthier
You can make these wonderful muffins even healthier by replacing all or part of the all-purpose white flour with whole wheat flour. It really does up the nutritional value.
I do suggest though that when you bake muffins and cakes with whole wheat flour, just sift it first. Your baking will be nice and light.
