Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins

Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins | Glutenfree-jenny.comThis scrumptious gluten free Morning Glory Muffin recipe is from my friend Kris who has been a very supportive friend through our celiac journey.  She has made us feel welcome in her home, going out of her way to serve us gluten free foods and now she is even supplying me with gluten free recipes that she has tried at home.  

I hope she knows how appreciative we are to have her, and her family close by :).

  • 1 organic apple, peeled, cored, and finely grated
  • 2 organic carrots, peeled and finely grated
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large organic eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tsp Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 cup organic almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey


Preheat oven to 350 and line muffin tin with  muffin liners.

Combine the grated apple, carrot and coconut in a large bowl, mix well. Stir in oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

In a separate bowl combine eggs, vanilla, milk, oil and honey.  Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine.

Fill muffin liners 3/4 of the way full.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. I absolutely devoured these for breakfast this morning! I didn’t have oat flour so I ground GF oats in a food processor until they were a flour-like consistency. Also, I might grind the coconut flakes down a bit since my kids didn’t like their “chewiness” in the muffins. I think this is one of my favorite muffin recipes….Thanks Kris and Jen!

  2. That’s a great idea Marta – the whole grinding up the coconut – because my daughter won’t touch coconut (crazy, I know). And I always use a food processor to make oat flour! The only annoying thing is cleaning the food processor, ha!

    Thanks for this recipe Jenny (via your pal), it really looks delicious and healthy. Can’t wait to give it a try. And awesome to have such a good friend 🙂 You are lucky!

    • Gosh what is it with kids and coconut. I have one who loves it and another who doesn’t want it in anything. Unfortunately (or fortunately) there are many, many gluten free recipes that seem to be either lemon or coconut based. Personally both of those flavors I love in any and everything! Maybe it’s an acquired taste? After all my youngest and Bunky are only 7 and 5. I’m not willing to give up on them yet 🙂
