I love the combination of fruits, walnuts, and cinnamon and sugar in these muffins. I have never combined carrots, and pineapple, and apples. I consider these muffins to be a breakfast, a snack, and a dessert, all in one. They are delicious right out of the oven and reheated later on. Will make these frequently. They are amazing!

I make a batch of morning glory muffins just about every week. My son loves their sweet flavor, and I love that I'm sneaking nuts, fruits, and veggies into a great grab and go breakfast! Perfect for busy school day mornings when you don't have time to cook - make them the night before, and microwave them for a few seconds in the morning if you like them warm!

I enjoyed these muffins for breakfast for an entire week. They were moist and stayed fresh all week long. The texture of the carrot along with the crunch from the walnuts were delightful. They give a regular bran muffin a run for the money. I will definitely use this recipe again. It tastes good and it's good for me...talk about a winning combination.
