Glazed Key Lime Muffins

If you are like me and you love key lime pie, these muffins are for you. I am so tired of this awful, cold winter that I wanted to make something to remind me of the spring and summer. These muffins are so delicious that they could also be a dessert. Just saying.

If you like it more limey (is that a word?) then you can always add more lime juice.   It’s super important to use FRESH key lime juice though.  It will be worth it.  I promise.

You can also top these with unsweetened shredded coconut if you’d like.   That will make them more tropical, which I think we can all use now.  The glaze on these muffins is AMAZING!!

I hope you enjoy these~
