Motts Morning Glory Bread or Muffins

Motts Morning Glory Bread or Muffins are made with Motts Applesauce. I found this recipe years ago on the back of a jar of Motts Applesauce. It is loaded with chunky applesauce, shredded carrots, dried cranberries, crushed pineapple and shredded coconut, making this bread super moist and delicious. Don’t have crushed pineapple, don’t fret. You could use a different crushed or mashed fruit such as bananas.

Make Jumbo Muffins

I can’t say enough about this recipe. The batter is fantastic. After I made a loaf of bread. my hubby and I polished it off in almost one sitting. I immediately got out my jumbo size muffin tin and made a batch of jumbo muffins. I’ll admit, I preferred the jumbo muffins verses the bread. The jumbo muffins made for a super delicious, grab n’ go breakfast. Breakfast made easy! (The muffins freeze great too)

When making Motts morning glory bread, if you don’t have dried cranberries there are several substitutions you can use. Dark or golden raisins would work nicely in this recipe. You could certainly use dried cherries or dried blueberries. Even dates or figs will work. Put some glory into your morning and whip up a batch of this super moist bread. But better yet, make two loaves, one for yourself or one to give away or freeze.
