A delicious treat that I snuck zucchini in for my children, that has a sweet lemon glaze and goes perfect with my morning coffee.

light and full of lemony goodness,

but were just the right amount of sweetness,

with a slight hint of cinnamon!

I found the muffins a little bland. The lemon glaze helps. I up the amount of lemon & milk to 4 teaspoons for the glaze was to thick. I would make again adding some walnuts and more cinnamon.
