LEMON MUFFINS WITH A LEMON-HONEY GLAZE (GRAIN FREE, SCD) these lemon muffins are simple and delightful, a perfect summer-is-approaching breakfast treat, snack or dessert, with an optional but extremely easy lemon-honey glaze.

Who is to really say what qualifies as too many lemon recipes? I could legitimately start a lemon-flavoured food blog at this point. That might not even be a bad idea. Get my niche going for real. I guess before I become a professional lemon-flavoured-food blogger, I am going to just share *yet* another lemon-flavoured recipe as summer (or perhaps even, just spring, we’ll take whatever we can get over here) is tantalizingly close and this recipe certainly feels summer-y.

These lemon muffins are a rare muffin recipe where I opted to combine almond flour and coconut flour, as well as thick, 24-hour dripped SCD yogurt (or else just use your preferred thick/greek yogurt brand), to result in the most perfect little muffins in texture and consistency and flavour (what else do you even want from me???).

While I do have a lot of lemon-inspired recipes on my site (see more on those ideas below), I wanted something classic, (or classy? Lemon is definitely a classy lady), simple and satisfying. A lemon muffin hits those three points, with the lemon-honey glaze making it a little bit fancier (classier?) while also keeping the “simple” checkbox filled. 

The lemon-honey glaze is really just an extra sprucing up for  any one child or man who might enjoy a bit of extra sweetness, however these store best in the freezer pre-glazed (and glaze when you want to serve). They are also delicious without the glaze, packing a still-sweet (shout out honey) lemon punch.

  1. These look delicious! Can you recommend a dairy free swap for the yogurt? Can’t wait to make these 🙂

    1. Hey Kristen! So sorry for my late reply here, but I hope you still get a chance to try these – honestly, for a dairy-free swap, I would suggest going with coconut yogurt if you can tolerate? Or you can also try subbing in dry curd cottage cheese aka farmer’s cheese – it is typically suitable for those with lactose intolerance because it has little to no lactose. I hope this helps, let me know!!
