Super-tender little cakes with a tangy lemon glaze. Be sure to use fresh lemon juice for the brightest flavor.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F; line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and spray the inside of the liners with cooking spray. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center.

  2. Combine the eggs, almond milk and oil in a small bowl with a whisk. Add to the dry ingredients; stir until combined (batter will be very thick).

  3. Divide evenly among prepared cups, about a scant ¼ cup each. Bake 24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool in pan 5 minutes; remove muffins to a rack to cool completely.

  4. Combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a bowl; drizzle over cooled muffins. Garnish with lemon peel if desired.
