Morning Glory Muffins are bring a little bite of cheerful nutrition to start the day. Lightly sweet muffins with a flavor as bright and sunny as a glorious morning sunrise! This post is sponsored by the United Dairy Industry of Michigan. All thoughts are my own.
Hello, sweet Friends! How I’ve missed you! The last month has been beyond eventful around the Comfortably Domestic house…or shall I say houses? In the past three weeks, Bacon Slayer underwent knee surgery for a torn meniscus that he sustained during a pick-up soccer scrimmage of parents versus our Varsity Boys team. In true form, he continued to play for an hour to finish the game, giving no indication that anything was amiss. This is the same man that broke his hand in the the first inning of a double header in softball and continued to play short stop in both games. The man has an unbelievable pain threshold.
Anyway, my love had surgery, we accepted an offer on our house, twenty-seven gallons of paint later, I finished painting our new house, packed all of our worldly possessions into boxes, moved them into our new house, started our homeschool year with the Sons, and then I went on a press trip that I’ll be telling you more about next week. Sprinkle in a few dozen soccer games and practices for Son #1, practices for Son #3’s team (of which I am the coach,) and unpacking a few hundred boxes of stuff later, and here we are! Never a dull moment around here.
Sometimes I exhaust me.
Suffice it to say, the past month has been one in which the only way to survive it all was to circle the wagons and concentrate on what is truly important–family.
Oh, and these Morning Glory Muffins helped keep us from starving in the process.
Morning Glory Muffins are lightly sweet, stuffed full of such nutritious add-ins as vanilla yogurt, carrots, coconut, and bits of pineapple. I’ve been baking Morning Glory Muffins twice a week for the past month so that we always have a healthy snack or light meal to sustain us. All the protein, vitamins and healthy fats provide the energy needed to keep soldiering on through the day.
The bright flavors of a Morning Glory Muffin always put a smile on my face.
They’re just so stinkin’ cheerful!
