I love these Grain Free Morning Glory Muffins because they’re dense, nutritious and keep me feeling full throughout the day.
For days when we have no time to spare, my kids love to grab these muffins as a great snack. And while everyone loves regular Morning Glory Muffins (with grains), I had to come up with a grain-free version to satisfy all the dietary needs in our house.
This recipe was developed for my third cookbook, The Best Grain-Free Family Meals on the Planet. For the book, I set out on a mission to come up with the perfect recipe and oh boy, I did it!
I even made it easier and faster to prepare by making it a “food processor” or “blender” recipe. Because let’s face it, we’re all super busy these days and the less intimidating a recipe is, the more likely you are to try it.
Check out how easy it is to make. All you need is a food processor or a blender, and the batter comes together quickly!
Overall, these muffins are fantastic because of their adaptability. If you don’t have raisins, try cranberries or dates. No walnuts? How about some almonds or pecans? Anything goes, just make sure to keep the measurements the same.
If you feel inspired by this grain-free recipe and need more inspiration on how to cook grain-free, you should check out my third cookbook — The Best Grain-Free Family Meals on the Planet. It’s a great source for providing fresh foods and filling recipes that taste just as great as a traditional diet, if not even tastier!
What is your favorite breakfast muffin?

- In a food processor, combine flax meal, walnuts, and coconut flour until it resembles coarse sand. Add baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; pulse a few times to combine.
