Morning Glory Muffins

Hello again. You know, rainy days always make me want to bake something yummy. I was in the mood for some morning glory muffins. I found this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens years ago and it's become one of my favorite muffin recipes. The first time I made them, I wasn't sure if the children would try them because of all the carrots and apples in the recipe but I was wrong. The muffins turned out to be so good and sweet. Once the family realized how delicious they were, they didn't last long at all. Hint, hint... This is also a really great way to sneak in extra fruits and vegetables for picky eaters.

Morning Glory Muffins

1/2 cup raisins
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple (juice pack)
2/3 cup cooking oil
