Lemon Blueberry Muffins – Plump, tender blueberries and tart lemons come together to make the ultimate Lemon Blueberry Muffins. They are soft, slightly sweet, and filled with fresh fruit.
Nothing says warm, beautiful weather quite like a fresh lemon blueberry muffin.
These breakfast muffins are one of my favorite breakfasts to make on the weekend, because there are always leftovers for the following days.
These lemon blueberry muffins come together quickly, are soft, and full of plump blueberries.
The lemon flavor is just enough to add a fresh, tartness without being overwhelming.
If you have some extra blueberries and are looking for a great breakfast or brunch idea, these blueberry muffins are a great option!
Another one of our Springtime favorites is this lemon blueberry bread. It’s similar to these lemon blueberry muffins, only in bread form, and it’s topped with a sweet glaze.
We decided to make these berry muffins gluten-free, and used a modified version of a King Arthur gluten-free muffin recipe. Here’s how we make ours!
How to Make Lemon Blueberry Muffins:
First, preheat oven to 375°F, wash and dry your blueberries, and line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups.
Then, blend the ingredients until the batter is smooth and creamy. Now, fold in the blueberries and lemon zest and grab a 1/3 cup measuring cup.
Use the 1/3 cup measuring cup to pour muffin batter into the muffin liners. Bake the lemon blueberry muffins for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when pressed into the center of a muffin.
Repeat the process until all the batter is gone. Serve immediately or save in an airtight container for up to three days.
