Hearty Morning Glory Muffins Recipe

I found this recipe for hearty muffins in a cookbook I received as a Christmas gift years ago. Now my family often requests that I make these, especially after we go apple-picking in the fall.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:36 servings


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups grated peeled apples
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix oil, eggs and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples, raisins, coconut, carrots and nuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until muffins test done. Yield: about 3 dozen.

"Delicious!! I've been using this recipe (with minor changes) for years. It is always requested when I cater to groups who meet in the mornings. I've cut back successfully on the amount of oil by using 1 + 1/2 cups applesauce and 1/2 cup of oil. My recipe calls for 2 grated apples and 4 cups grated raw carrots."
