These were really delish, my family really enjoyed them. Next time I will double the recipe. I made these in a low sugar version. Thank you for sharing!

Really tasty muffins! We like lots of lemon, so I use all the zest and juice I can get from one of my Meyer lemons,

These lemon muffins were very good. Light and tasty. I cut back just a bit on the lemon juice and peel to suit our tastes.
