Sometimes, the morning meal offers up a conundrum: delicious or healthy? Clogged arteries or lamenting tastebuds? Fret no more, dear people. This muffin is here to help! The lemon olive oil muffin provides a heart-healthy fat without resorting to dry, cardboard flavor. Plus, in addition to being a healthy fat, olive oil imparts a sinful moistness to cakes and muffins that leaves you wondering why you ever wasted time on a store-bought muffin that looked like real food and tasted like real sawdust.
And the lemon! We love a lemony jolt of flavor in the morning to start your day off right, and even though the lemon’s profile is muted by the olive oil, it still adds a lovely lift of citrus to your morning. And if you add a lemon glaze – well, we won’t tell if you eat it for dessert, too.
