I experimented with many "Glorious Morning Muffins or Glory Muffins"
then I adapted this recipe from all those trials. They have a lot of ingredients but are worth the time. They are very versatile and freeze well, very handy to take with when you are in a hurry in the morning.
If you like, you can also spread them with a cream cheese frosting to make them more cupcake like.

How to Make MiMi's Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Instructions : 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line twelve to sixteen 1/2-cup muffin cups with paper muffin liners.

    2. Whisk the flours with the brown sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl lightly whisk the egg, then whisk in the oil (or if you prefer, like I do use melted coconut oil), and vanilla extract.

    3. Quickly and lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula. Stir in the carrots and pineapple, apple, coconut, raisins just until evenly moist; the batter will be very thick. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Turn muffins out of the tins and cool on a rack. Serve warm. Top with a cream cheese frosting if desired.
