Lemon Muffins

My most viewed post of all-time is this recipe for Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins. When I look at the search terms that bring people to my blog, 9 times out of 10, a variation of those 5 words is on the list for any given day. It’s been 6 months since I posted that recipe, and I started to think – do people love this recipe because it’s a muffin or because of the ingredients in the muffin? Maybe it’s a combination of both?

I wanted to see if you guys love all muffins equally, so I made you these super simple, incredibly moist, lemon muffins. They’ve got little yellow flecks of lemon zest sprinkled throughout, an extra sweet turbinado sugar topping, and a soft, moist center all packed in a perfectly sized breakfast/brunch/snack/dessert treat. My point is, you should give these muffins a chance, because they just might rock your world, almost as much as the banana oatmeal chocolate chip ones!

    Ah I LOVE anything lemony. I’ll definitely be making these. Where do you find the turbinado sugar? Or can I use something as a replacement?

    I’m emailing you my personal address so that you can mail me some– while I can turn boxed cake mix into cupcakes, I would ruin this! YUM
