I have three or four recipes floating around for morning glory muffins. I finally got around to making the Cooking Light version (recipe). As far as I can tell, a morning glory muffin is characterized by having “lots of stuff.” Some recipes call bananas and flaxseed, others are enlivened by grated carrot and crushed pineapple. Almost all include nuts and dried fruit. As a breakfast treat, they are a hearty healthy start to the day, so I suppose they live up to the name.
