Angie’s Low Calorie Morning Glory Muffins


Inside Morning GloryMorning Glory Muffins


“This famous apple muffin really is as good as everyone says it is!  Cafes, bakery shops, and home bakers have their own variation of the Morning Glory.  One thing in common to all is the muffin is packed with lots of carrots, apples, and nuts!  

Most muffins are high in fat and calories so I made a few changes in the original Morning Glory recipe without sacrificing the great taste! I use applesauce instead of apple butter, I made a change in the oven temperature directions, and an increase in the amount of topping.

Everyone seems to rave about these muffins! One muffin for breakfast or snack is only 185 calories or 5 Weight Watcher Points.             Enjoy!”
