Rosemary & Lemon Muffins

Share

Satisfy your sweet tooth with these Rosemary & Lemon Muffins! They are airy, fluffy, and delicious. Packed with lemon and rosemary flavor and kept moist with olive oil. Top these muffins off with a tangy lemon rosemary glaze and sprinkle with almond flakes for a truly special treat.

These muffins are easy to throw together. Start with the batter. For the dry ingredients, I like to use a mix of all-purpose and almond flour for a more wholesome muffin with a perfect crumb. For the wet ingredients, whisk the egg whites until the soft peaks form. Then the rest is pretty basic: Combine the dry ingredients with the egg whites and stir in the olive oil and honey. Finally, fold in the lemon zest and divide the batter between muffin cups. Bake the muffins and let cool while making the lemon-rosemary syrup. Glaze the muffins and garnish with a few rosemary sprigs. Enjoy these muffins warm with a cup of tea for a fabulous treat!  

To make the Rosemary & Lemon Muffins, you will need the following ingredients:
