These are fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly, and did find that the recipe made about 15 muffins, however, not 12. The lemon zest was excellent mixed with the honey and goat cheese, and I may add more next time. I highly recommend these!


Thank you- going to women's PEO convention and this is the best recipe for a take along breakfast I can have for the next three days. Froze the rest.
