Tasty Treaty By Summer: Morning Glory Muffins Recipe

It’s MomStart’s fault this is late this week, I admit, I didn’t have time to get this up for Summer. Here’s her fabulous recipe this week.

By Summer:

Sorry for not posting last week! I got so caught up in my “Super Mommy” mode! This is why I don’t have my own blog! HA!

So thank you to Louise for the pardon, and I hope you will provide me one too. SOOOO, this week I’m bringing you two recipes. This one is a great snack or breakfast item … which is why I named them “Morning Glory Muffins”. Not after the flower, but since I thought off all the sweet things I like to have for breakfast and just threw them into this batter.


If you need to “wake up and smell the coffee” (like I seem to need to do), then these will help! And, just for you, they’re simple to make! This is another of my all in one bowl recipes.

Morning Glory Muffins Recipe


1 cup Mama’s Coconut Blend flour
½ cup quick oats
½ cup Love Crunch Apple Crumble
¼ cup wheat germ
¼ cup ground flaxseed
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
¼ cup agave
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ cup shelled and salted sunflower seeds
1/3 cup white chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven to 350oF. Grease a mini muffin pan.

2. In your Kitchen Aid mixer with the paddle attachment mix all ingredients together until fully combined on speed 2.

3. Spoon into cups. Finish product will not rise, so plan accordingly! For minis cook 12 minutes but for regular muffins cook 22 minutes. An inserted toothpick should come out clean.
