Whole-Wheat Morning Glory Muffins


These morning glory muffins are lightly sweetened with maple syrup and made with whole-wheat flour. They have a touch of warm spices and are loaded with carrots, raisins, oats and nuts.



¾ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup whole-wheat flour

½ cup rolled oats, plus 2 tablespoons for garnish

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon ground allspice

2 eggs

2/3 cup fat-free plain yogurt

2/3 cup dark pure maple syrup

¼ cup avocado oil or organic canola oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cup shredded carrots

½ cup toasted nuts, such as walnuts

½ cup raisins


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper cupcake liners.

2. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, ½ cup oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and allspice in a medium bowl and set aside.

3. Whisk eggs, yogurt, maple syrup, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Stir the dry ingredient into the wet mixture. Stir in carrots, nuts and raisins.

4. Divide muffin batter between the prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons oats over the batter. Bake until the muffins spring back when lightly touched and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only moist crumbs attached, 32 to 34 minutes. Cool in the pan about 10 minutes before removing, and cooling on a wire rack.


These muffins can be frozen for up to one month. Seal them in a gallon freezer bag. Thaw on the counter or you can pop them in the microwave to thaw quickly.
