Muffins…Is there anything cozier or more satisfying then biting into a still-warm muffin straight from the oven? Okay, yes, there probably are a few cozier things that come to mind, but muffins certainly rank pretty high on my personal list of ultra-nostalgic comfort foods.

To inspire your own need for this fluffy, tasty treat, I’m sharing yet another recipe from our friends Bethany and Aaron Mallory of The Farmhaus On Main fame. This local speciality coffee shop and café serves up seasonal baked goods each week, and it turns out that fresh dried lavender has provided the inspiration for their summertime fare as of late.

I can personally attest to how delicious these muffins are, especially when still warm from the oven. The lemon adds the perfect hint of tartness, while the lavender gives the treat a savory finish that goes way beyond run-of-the-mill muffins. At least in my opinion! If you give this recipe a try sometime this season, don’t forget to tag @dreamgreendiy and @thefarmhausonmain on social media so we can sink into a state of envy over your plate of fresh muffins.
