Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2017 is finally here! We didn’t even attempt to stay up until midnight last night… I know. Party pooper. But the good news is that I was so rested that I made you muffins! Skinny Lemon Muffins to be exact!

I know that the days of over indulgence are now behind us… almost 24 hours behind us ;) In an effort to keep you on track with your New Year’s resolution of healthier eating, I bring you these glorious muffins.

Based off of my Skinny Orange Muffins recipe, this muffin recipe features Greek yogurt and coconut oil instead of butter or regular oil. They are intensely moist and bursting with bright lemon flavor thanks to the addition of lemon zest and fresh lemon juice.

A simple and optional glaze brings out even more lemon flavor and a touch of sweetness.

These muffins are not super sweet. You have been warned. Plenty sweet for sure, but not over-the-top sweet as some muffin recipes are. If you would like to make these muffins sweeter, simply use lemon Greek yogurt instead of plain Greek yogurt. Not only will you get more sweetness, but more lemon flavor as well.

You can also swap out half of the all-purpose flour with whole-wheat flour if you’d like. Your call.

My boys love to snack on these muffins and they go great with a cup of coffee as well. Give them a try! I know you’ll love them as much as I do and will find yourself making them again and again. Enjoy!

  7. I am all over the coconut oil thing! I have been wanting more recipes that use it. Plus, when I buy that big vat of Greek Yogurt at Costco, I am always looking for ways to use it up, so these muffins are perfect!

  8. Judy Harmon says:
