Baked Sunday Mornings: Lemon Pistachio Cornmeal Muffins



After missing a couple Sundays, then having somewhat of a recipe fail last week with the banana fritters, I was happy to see Lemon Pistachio Cornmeal Muffins on the schedule for Baked Sunday Mornings this week.  Why?  Because I had made them right after I got Baked Elements and loved them!  In fact, this rarely happens with baked goods, but I think I may have eaten more of them than my husband. 



I don't always like the grittiness of cornmeal, but I think it works really well in these muffins with the combination of ground-up pistachios in the muffins and the larger chunks of nuts on top.

These muffins are definitely worth a try, especially right now during citrus season.  You can find the recipe here on the Baked Sunday Mornings site and click here to see if the other bakers liked these muffins as much as I did.

Your muffins that great. Love the pics of them. I'm so glad I tried them. I love lemons and adding that to cornmeal just really worked!
I made them twice and shared with friends to get the word out about how good these muffins are! :o)

I don't do pistachios, but the combination of the lemon and cornmeal sounds fantastic! Gotta love when a recipe comes up in the rotation and you've already made it :)

Congrats to the 49ers for their win tonight! I'll definitely be cheering for you guys when you play the Ravens!

I agree, the cornmeal-ground pistachio mixture was a nice surprise...it works really well. Your muffins are very pretty and I also agree, they are hard to resist.

These really were addictive! I gave some to my brother to keep from eating all of them.

I enjoy the texture of cornmeal. This sounds like a fun twist on a cornmeal muffin.
