Morning Glory Muffins – The ULTIMATE Breakfast Muffins


My Morning Glory Muffins are what I refer to as  ‘The Ultimate Breakfast Muffins’.  These muffins are  full of carrots and zuchinni – don’t worry you can’t taste them, with the perfect amount of sweetness from raisins and pineapple and of course a bit of sugar!
