Morning Glory Muffins

January 7, 2014

These Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins are delicious and packed-full of nutrition to make an awesome and healthy breakfast on the go!

What’s the story morning glory?
If you were to ask me this first thing in the morning there is a 90% chance I won’t answer you.

morning glory muffinsWhile I definitely consider myself a morning person I am absolutely not a morning chatter.

The majority of the reason why I wake up in the morning is because it means I can finally eat breakfast, which for the record is the highlight of my day. Nothing brings me as much joy as deciding what to eat for breakfast except maybe the first bite of my oats/waffle/pancakes/muffin/omelet.

I like to savor my mornings, not chat about last night’s shenanigans, your Freudian interpretation of your dreams or today’s plans. I prefer not to speak unless required to.

morning glory muffins 2I can’t decide if this means I’m not a morning person. I love the mornings; I just enjoy them significantly more when spent alone.

Ironically I hate the nighttime. Nothing gives me more anxiety than the day drawing to a close, yet I’m as chatty as they come when the sun begins to set.

A possible compensatory action? I’ll leave the analysis to you.

    I adore breakfast too!! My daughter has informed me that I need to calm down in the mornings as thats when I am the most chatty – so not sure what your prognosis is 🙂
    As much as I love breakfast, i am so so boring when it comes to it – but I need to switch out my oats with these muffins some time! They sound suspiciously like an apple-carrot cupcake moonlighting as a muffin! totally delish flavor combo!

    Baha this reminds me of my sister, who is NOT a morning person. My rule with her growing up was “don’t speak until spoken to.” Sometimes she would be up for hours before suddenly saying “good morning Kimby!” It worked though, I always knew she was ready to talk then. But, since you like mornings, and hate nights, you’re definitely still a morning person in my book 🙂 Also these muffins look delicious. <3

    These sound delicious and like a good on the go breakfast. This non-baker may have to give them a try! I’m with you, I am a morning person, but like a little peace and quiet to ease into the day. I purposely get up at 4:30 on work days to have a little quiet before everyone gets up. That is post-child though, I never would have thought getting up at that time for a little peace made sense, but now its a must!

    Haha. I am not starting to analyze this, but I am definitely not a morning chatter, though I would consider myself a morning person and overall pretty chatty too 😉 . And these muffins would be a great reason to get up, even if you are not a morning person. Damn girl, you just made me miss my oven a lot more. I have to hold me over with microwaved mug cakes and french croissants I guess.

    These muffins look like a super delicious way to start the day! Maybe with these, I mightttt want to talk to people. 😉

I’ve been eating one along with a smoothie lately, and it’s really done the trick! I have no idea if you came up with this name or if morning glory muffins are a thing and this is your twist, but I love the name! It’s so cute!

    YUM. I’ve been crumbling a homemade muffin on my pumpkin yogurt every morning, and these look like a perfect addition. Yes, it’s OK if you want to send a huge batch my way :). I’m similar to you – I enjoy getting up in the mornings, but that’s because I feel like I have the opportunity to get a few things done and get my day off to a good start. Not so much a chatter. My whole family was the same way, but when I’m at my in-laws, man they like to talk in the mornings!!!

    Those muffins look great! I’m much more of a morning person. I carpool to work, so I’m usually chatting all the way in and then I’ll spend the first 30 minutes of work catching up with everyone instead of actually working haha. By the evening, I’m all chatted out so I use that time to just relax and zone out.

Which is why I make it a point most days to get up before anyone else in the house. Now if one of the girls happen to get up before me yeah my morning does not start off as good. 🙂

    I think mornings are a reflective time and a time to get stuff done before you have to interact with people. Once I start interacting with people I start to feel more drained and tired because it takes energy, so I’m with you in that I like to get up in the morning but I want to do my own thing.

I love weekend mornings when I can take my time and go to the gym then come home and make brunch…work day mornings are always rushed and full of a long commute, not so fun. Anyway, great recipe!

    You totally just put into words my feelings towards both mornings and evenings! I love early, calm mornings where I can enjoy my coffee and start slow, but I get anxious as evening approaches because I feel like I haven’t finished everything I need to do! But despite that, nighttime is when I have the most energy to have long, drawn-out discussions 🙂

    Now that’s a tough one. Like you, I can’t say I was -not- a morning person because I’ve always associated that with being all grumpy and freaking out when somebody starts talking to them [yes, I know one of those lovely persons]. However, I prefer to get the day started calmly and all by myself, too. Unlike you, though, I don’t enjoy deciding on a breakfast because I hardly ever know what I want and it’s somewhat ‘frustrating’ [exaggerating a bit obviously].

    I’m right there with you on not chatting in the mornings. When we first got married (over 17 years ago), Chris would jump up and immediately start whistling and snapping (he tends to walk around snapping his fingers & whistling – perpetually happy!) and talking!!! We had a talk (not early in the AM) about that – basically don’t talk to me in the mornings and don’t be so chipper around me!!! We’ve settled in and even though he doesn’t get it he respects it. Plus, it helps me deal with the boys – by the time they get up I’ve been up for hours so I could chat but they prefer to have breakfast in silence – I get it!!!

    I could totally be your roommate because that’s exactly how my one roomie is! I know that while she gets up super early (even earlier than me) she isn’t ready to chat at allllll until about 930/10 am. I used to think she was mad at me or something until I just learned it was her pattern. I’m totally a chatter so it was just something I had to get used to. So, anyway about these muffins, love the addition of carrots! And I’m sure that they are better than that one movie called Morning Glory.

    Saving this recipe right about…NOW! I’ve never had a morning glory muffin before, but have always wanted to both try & recreate one of my own. Thankfully for me, you’ve already provided me w/ a recipe =) Can’t wait to bake some once my vitacost order gets here with my milk. Ha Ha!

    Morning person… not a fan of night.

    Love breakfast! Lately I’ve been obsessed with veggies, bacon or chicken sausage and a fried egg. Every day, can’t get enough!

    I LOVE THIS POST! I was laughing as I read it because i feel the exact same way about mornings. 1. Sometimes the only thing getting me out of bed is breakfast. 2. I’m awake so early for ME time!! To eat my breakfast and chill out, with noone up to bother me yet.

    STOOOOP I’ve been craving morning glory muffins and I was going to try making my own. Now I’ll have to try making yours. You’ve got to get out of my brain.

    I also love mornings because breakfast is the highlight of my day. It’s all I think about because usually I workout and get ready on weekdays (and go to work and settle in) before eating proper breakfast (I have an energy bite or some cereal or yogurt before that). I hate chatting in the morning… a downfall of living at home haha. We are the same person.

    I am a morning person. It’s actually my favorite part of the day, most likely because it’s my quiet time by myself. It helps me plan, prepare, and recharge. It’s my Zen moment, which I suspect I could also find by eating these muffins. Holy Toledo, these are packed with so much veggie goodness. I love it. Can you bring me some of these? I promise not to talk and I’ll even make you a cup of coffee or tea.

    Breakfast is most definitely the highlight of the day…hence the reason why it normally occurs more than once in MY day! 😉 With my night-shift schedule, it’s practically impossible to tell you what “kind” of person I am (you know, besides the zombie type), but I will say that when I worked a normal shift, I was definitely a morning person…not the chatty Cathy kind but more of the get up early and start the day in a quiet, peaceful manner kind of way. There’s just something about eeeeeeeeeeeasing into the day! Nothing like oversleeping and having to rush rush rush…those are always the worst!

      I’m sorry to hear that! Ovens can vary greatly and can also be affected by things like elevation. I’ve made them several times and I’ve never had them turn out raw but again, these things can vary.
