Lemon Balm Zucchini Muffins

06 August, 2018 / by Britta Skalman

One of the highlights of my summer was attending a Garden Tea Party at The Lamb Shoppe & Wellness Center. While sipping on a variety of tea, I had the pleasure of learning more about culinary and medicinal herbs as they gave a tour of their lovely herbal garden. I had just made a batch of lemon zucchini muffins that morning, and being inspired by the information, I went right home and recreated our recipe so it is now Lemon Balm Zucchini Muffins!

Little did I know when I was trying to find another use for my prolific zucchini that these delicious muffins could be enhanced by including lemon balm. Lemon balm is a perennial plant and is a member of the mint family. It has a calming effect on your nervous, cardiovascular and digestive systems. Enjoy it’s delightful, uplifting flavor in teas, salads and dressings, side dishes and sweet treats like these!

    I am not familiar with lemon balm. Where would I find it? I’m enjoying all of your recipes I have tried so far!

      Hi Carolyn!
      We’re glad to hear you like all the recipes you’ve tried! Lemon balm is a member of the mint family. I planted it in my garden for the first time this year. If you can’t find it, you can still enjoy these delicious muffins made without the lemon balm. 🙂
