“What’s the Story Morning Glory?”  It’s true.  There are morning muffins that are good for you.  Try these muffins and you won’t be sorry that you did.


1 1/4 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Cup Uncooked Old-Fashioned Oats

2/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/3 Cup Skim Milk

1/4 Cup Molasses

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Large Egg

3 Shredded Carrots

1/2 Cup Chopped Prunes

Preheat your oven to 400º F.  Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper muffin liners.  In a large size bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and kosher salt.  Stir in the oats.  In a separate large size bowl mix together the applesauce, milk, molasses, brown sugar, oil and egg until well blended.  Stir in the prunes and carrots.  Add the applesauce mixture to the flour mixture.  Stir just until the flour is moist.  You will see that the batter will be lumpy, but don’t worry about it.  Pour the batter into the muffin liners.  Place into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Remember that every oven heats differently so check your muffins at 20 minutes.  To test to see if they are done insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin and if it comes out clean then your muffins are done.  Remove from the oven and immediately remove the muffins from the pan.  Transfer to a serving platter and serve warm with butter on the side.  Makes 12 muffins
