I’m always creating new recipes to feed my family that are healthy and guilt-free.

These morning glory muffins pack a nutritious punch of fruits and vegetables in each bite. 

Any way I can sneak fruits and vegetables into my kids I do!

My kids are big fans of my double chocolate zucchini muffins which also feature sweet carrots and whole wheat flour.

Because I was out of zucchini and the kids were asking for muffins, I had to get creative in the kitchen.

I had plenty of apples and carrots in the fridge and hence this new recipe was born.

The trick to making these muffins super moist is being generous with the shredded carrots and grated apple.

The hardest part is grating the carrots and making sure your fingers stay intact.

I used a steel box grater but a food processor would also work well.

And it’s easier on the fingers!

These muffins would also be delicious with pecans sprinkled on top.

And while I kept this recipe simple, a half a teaspoon of cinnamon and allspice would add warmth to the muffins and be ideal for fall.
