Eating in the Middle Morning Glory Muffins

Many people believe eating in the morning is not a healthy habit. They say that breakfast should be eaten at least two hours after waking up and it’s better to eat lunch instead of breakfast because you will have already had your first meal. However, there are many benefits to eating early in the day such as reduced hunger, increased productivity levels, clearer thinking and more energy throughout the day.

These muffins are a great way to start the day. They have vanilla and chocolate flavors, with chunks of chocolate throughout the muffin. Read more in detail here: vanilla muffins with chocolate chunks.

It’s not every day that you meet someone who immediately makes you feel good about yourself. Whose presence emits a warmth that can’t help but penetrate your heart. One of such persons is Andie Mitchell.

Andie and I met in person at the Better Blog Retreat earlier this year, although I had known her and her blog for a long time. Andie is a woman with many talents. Her successes include not just her enormously popular blog, but also the novel It Was Me All Along, an emotional chronicle of her life’s struggle with food, and now Eating In The Middle, an absolutely lovely cookbook.

I leaped at the chance to offer a dish from Eating In The Middle when Andie requested. I knew the book would be chock-full of delectable dishes, gripping narrative, and stunning photos. Andie describes the book as “mainly wholesome,” reflecting her eating philosophy of “nearly everything healthy, with a little bit of pleasure.” That’s how it should be.

These Morning Glory Muffins are from the book’s breakfast section. They’re created with whole wheat flour for additional fiber and packed with carrots, coconut, pineapple, and raisins. AKA flavorful and nutritious muffins.


Morning glory muffins: how to make them

Morning glory muffins take just 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. Line the muffin pans before you start making the batter so they’re ready when you need them. Then, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (for this healthy muffin recipe, you’ll need flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt).

Combine the oil, eggs, and pineapple in the bowl of a standing mixer and beat until barely mixed. Fold in the carrots, raisins, and coconut using a spatula after adding the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Scoop the muffin batter into the muffin pans and fill to approximately 3/4 capacity. You don’t want to overfill the muffin pans; otherwise, the muffins will overflow in the oven and cause a mess!

Serve these muffins plain or with a dollop of butter or jam on top. These morning glory muffins may also be frozen; let them cool fully before placing them in a freezer baggie. This way, they’ll survive up to three months!


If you’re ever at a bookstore, make a beeline for the cookbook aisle and pick up a copy of Eating In The Middle. It’s a cookbook you can use for weekday dinners, lunches, Sunday sweets, and everything in between.

Andie, I adore you! Congratulations!
