Lemon Oatmeal Muffins

Muffins…a sweet, sort of healthy way to start your day.  Ok so they really aren’t that healthy but at least I am eating breakfast, right?  And these muffins have oatmeal, wheat flour, yogurt and lemon so see there is some healthy parts to the muffins.  

We have been having a big debate over how much lemon flavor is too much.  These muffins are for you if you like full on, slight pucker to your mouth lemon flavor.  If, like my daughter, you like a little less lemon reduce the lemon juice to ¾ cup. The oatmeal adds a welcome bit of texture to the muffins.  Hope they add to your sweet morning.
