Hello! I’m Melissa and I cook, confess, and corral chickens and children at Bless this Mess, where you can find healthy recipes (with some simple desserts included), a peek at my hobby farm, and the joys of raising five little ones, eight years old and younger. I’ve got a whole lot of mess to bless!
Chances are if your kids aren’t out of school for Christmas break yet they will be soon. One of my favorite things to do is bake with my kids while they are out of school. We made these delicious healthy moist carrot muffins (AKA Morning Glory Muffins) and they were a big hit. The best part? If you have them ready in the morning, the kids can serve themselves a simple breakfast and you can stay in bed a few extra minutes. Christmas break is also for us moms to have a break from getting kids ready at the crack of dawn isn’t it!?
These muffins are a healthy, sweet, no-fuss treat that can be enjoyed anytime. The fun part is you can add just about anything. The original recipe had lots of nuts, raisins, wheat germ, apples, and other great things in it. I didn’t have those on hand so I just skipped them. One great thing about this muffin is once you have the base you can swap in and out some of the “extras.”
I told my kids these were bunny muffins (because of all the carrots) and they thought that was really funny. So whether you are making these for a quick and healthy breakfast on the go, for a great snack, or to celebrate no school, you can’t go wrong with Morning Glory Muffins.
