Well it looks as though Summer has finally arrived here on the East Coast! In celebration of Mother Nature blessing us with some sunshine I grabbed some lemons and dug into my creative center to come up with a new fun recipe.
I used a no sugar added vanilla pudding to give these some texture and to keep the calories lower…from a yield of 10 muffins, each comes in at only 88 calories! I was pleasantly surprised when I cut one in half to find it soft and chewy in the middle…just the way they should be!
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of lemon flavor or scent, but in the Summer I start to crave citrus for some reason. These mini muffins have just enough tang to them without tasting overly sour. Grab an iced tea and enjoy a true taste of summer with this recipe!
