I watched this not long ago where he told the tale of how these were invented/reinvented back in his golden Grateful Dead days and he was a Dead Head. So, wanted to include his updated(?) version.

Morning Glory Muffins
from America's Test Kitchen

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 stick unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 carrots, peeled and grated - about 2 cups
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained and dried on paper towels
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, toasted and chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and coat a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together.
3. In another bowl, whisk the sugar, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla together until smooth.
4. Carefully add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and fold with a rubber spatula until just combined.
5. Add in the carrots, pineapple, coconut, raisins, and walnuts. Mix carefully.
6. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tin. Bake until golden and an inserted toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs attached, 22-27 minutes.
7. Cool in pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to a rack.
