Honey Lime Oat Muffins

“Simply luscious. This recipe is from a newspaper; on the back of the clipping is a partial television schedule that leads me to believe it is about 20-years-old...that and the dark tan color and crumbling edges. So it's either from central Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) or from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Note that microplane graters have made this recipe a lot easier! The glaze supposedly is optional, but NOT in my opinion.”
