My husband said these were the best muffins I've ever made, and they are really good. I used applesauce instead of apple butter, and cranberries instead of raisins. My husband and I both agreed they were just a little too sweet, so I will cut back on the sugar next time, but otherwise, the blend of flavors is wonderful. They freeze well too. Just pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds and they are just as good.
Morning Glory Muffins
These Morning Glory muffins are full of everything you'd expect in the bakery favorite—carrots, apple and raisins, topped with nuts and toasted wheat germ. But most versions are high in fat so we substituted apple butter for much of the fat, which makes each bite superbly moist and tender. If raisins aren't your favorite, substitute an equal amount of the dried fruit of your choice.

These muffins rocked!! The only thing I changed was using two whole eggs and used applesauce instead of apple butter and they were outstanding! Yes, a little bit of time is needed to make them but SO worth it!!
WONDERFUL MUFFINS!!!!! HAVE MADE THEM SEVERAL TIMES &
WITH ALL SORTS OF DRIED FRUIT. THE LAST BATCH I USED
PUMPKIN BUTTER INSTEAD OF APPLE BUTTER--WONDERFUL!!
Fairly easy recipe, used many bowls and took a little time to prep the carrots and apples. As for the muffins, very light and flavorful. I may add nuts to the batter next time in addition to just on top. I did add ground flax seed to the topping and it was good. I am going to freeze them for a quick morning grab and go breakfast so we'll see how well they freeze. Overall I would recommend these as a much better alternative to store bought muffins.
