Honey Lemon Muffins

Did I mention how much I love muffins? I love that they are easy to mix up, quick to throw in a muffin tin and yummy for breakfast or snack... So, I tried a new recipe today and they were sooooo good! I gave them to the kids for snack and my nephew was BEGGING for more! They were simple and I usually have all the ingredients in my cupboards - that makes them even better!

Honey Lemon Muffins
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tesapoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
additional grated lemon peel

In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the egg, honey, lemon juice, butter and lemon peel. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Coat muffin cups with cooking psray ro use paper liners; fill 1/2 full with batter. Bake at 375 for 14-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice; drizzle over warm muffins. Sprinkle with additional lemon peel.
