Pumpkin Spice Morning Glory Muffins


The reason I love morning glory muffins is because you really can't go wrong with them! There are so many delicious combinations of ingredients that you can combine to make these muffins, but the key is to find nutrient dense ingredients that work well together. 

Ingredients

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
pinch salt
6 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 medium apple, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup raisins 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350* and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray (I used Trader Joe's coconut oil cooking spray).
2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. 
3. In a different bowl add eggs and whip until combined. Add oil, vanilla, honey, and pumpkin. 
4. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir in carrots, dates, apple, and raisins. 
5. Divide between muffin cups and bake for 15-18 minutes. Should make 15 muffins.
