Whole Wheat Lemon Berry Muffins

For a healthy alternative to all-too-common oversized, high-fat muffins, try these guest favorite Whole Wheat Lemon Berry Muffins from the Green Mountain kitchens. It’s made with a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flour, which gives it a heartier texture and lots more nutrition! Don’t forget the lemon zest for extra zip. If you like them sweeter, try sprinkling each one with a pinch of brown sugar.     Photograph by  Torrey Drum, winner of a  $50 gift card from SpaIndex.com and a copy of  “Recipes for Living” by Green Mountain at Fox Run, as part of our Recipes for Healthy Living Contest.
