These White Chocolate Lemon Thyme Muffins might be my all-time favorite muffin:)) They are vegan, gluten free and create a sweet and tangy party in my mouth:)
I was inspired to make these after I received a Thyme plant. Our awesome school PTA gave all the staff the plants as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.
Each day, we got a cute little present like a water bottle, hand made soap and a notebook. They also catered breakfast and lunch everyday that week. Yep, pretty sure I gained 10 pounds! But it was all so good!! Thank you PTA!!!
The Thyme Plant came with a cute little sign and a recipe for a Chicken-Thyme dish.
Of course, I’m not going to make a chicken dish. And I originally thought I would make a savory muffin with oats, thyme, olives and sun dried tomatoes. However, the more I thought about it, I realized no one would eat these except me. And I have no business eating an entire batch of muffins (even if they are healthy!)
White Chocolate Lemon Thyme Muffins
I ran some ideas past Julian and he liked the idea of Lemon. Plus, he was craving white chocolate the other day, so that’s how these delicious morsels came to light.
I have never baked with Coconut Milk Yogurt before and I’m delighted these came out so moist. For a completely vegan option, you can use these Cocoa Butter Melts in place of the white chocolate.
These muffins have more sugar than I usually add to my recipes. But the protein in the yogurt and healthy lemons and thyme balance it all out;) And who knew that Thyme has so many health benefits like being high in Vitamin C, A, iron, as well as being a powerful antioxidant!?
