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!
