These are the best muffins I've ever eaten! Once I took them to a brunch. Three other women had brought muffins, too, but mine disappeared first, and everyone wanted the recipe! Even my husband, who doesn't normally like muffins, just can't seem to get enough of these!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2013

I agree with the recipe submitter - these are almost the best muffins I have ever eaten! All the different flavours of apple/carrot/pecan/coconut together are incredible. I did, like other reviewers, find them slightly oily so next time I will add less oil.

Try cutting down the oil to 1/2 cup instead of 1/4 cup.

MY REVIEW

I checked out other recipes that are similar to this and most others just use 1 egg and 1/4 cup oil. I'm gonna try that which should lead to much less fat (more diet friendly) and a lighter muffin.

I'm gonna try adding oats to it next time. It has a lot of oil and eggs so I'm also gonna replace some of the oil with applesauce I think.

I love Morning Glory muffins- and these are excellent. I used coconut oil and light brown sugar... moist and delicious. I almost never bake- but I'll be making these once a week!
