Morning glory muffins are made with a little bit of everything- whole wheat flour, shredded carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, and walnuts.

Cranberry and Oat Breakfast Muffins

I gotta say, I love healthy foods that don’t taste healthy at all. I wanted a to-go version of the fruit and nut oatmeal I’ve been having every morning. Something that was healthy, packed with fiber and Vitamin C, but still super tasty. This time of year, it was a no-brainer to add a whole…
