Honey Lime Oat Muffins

Simply luscious. This recipe is from a newspaper; on the back of the clipping is a partial television schedule that leads me to believe it is about 20-years-old...that and the dark tan color and crumbling edges. So it's either from central Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) or from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Note that microplane graters have made this recipe a lot easier! The glaze supposedly is optional, but NOT in my opinion.

Excellent and nutritious but the lime topping is a must! Very delicious and also a great dessert with overran or cream. Loved them!!!

These are wonderful tasting muffins! Love the taste of lime, & I'm with you ~ The glaze should NOT be optional! For us, that was what really made these special & with a more intense lime flavor! I definitely look forward to make these again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

Very tasty and unique muffins- the lime flavor was great. I added 1 whole egg per other reviews but my muffins were a little heavy, so I think I'll try the egg whites next time as the recipe states. Also I suggest diluting the glaze with a little milk to make it more liquid for dipping. The first two muffins I dipped came out like cupcakes with frosting- WAY to sweet. But once I thinned the glaze, things were just right. I can also say these muffins freeze well. Thank you! {Made for the I Recommend Tag}.
