Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries are one of my favorite things. They’re in some of my favorite recipes, I like to pick them myself, I eat them in smoothies and on top of cereal and by the handful. So when I think warm weather I think fresh blueberries. The last couple weeks we’ve had a few warmer “teaser” days when the temps reach up into the mid 50s and 60s….so wonderful and gets me craving spring. And a couple of days later the temperature plummets and we get 6 inches of snow! As long as March goes out like a lamb, then I guess I’m okay with it coming in like a lion.


Anyways, I love blueberries and so I decided to create these Lemon Blueberry Muffins as a twist on the classic Betty Crocker recipe we used growing up. If you want to learn how to cook I recommend buying the Betty Crocker cookbook, the red spiral one, and cooking your way through it. It has really clear directions and cooking tips, plus great basic recipes. I got mine when I was 16 or so and it is well-loved!

Lemon Blueberry Muffins with granola topping are a delicious and healthy breakfast muffin. Perfect for spring brunch or an easy snack!

For the lemon blueberry muffins I substituted Greek yogurt for some of the original oil to make them a touch healthier. I also reduced the sugar just a bit too.  The lemon flavor gives them a pizzazz and elevates them above the ordinary. Also, I love the way my hands smell after grating lemon peel. For a bit of extra texture and prettiness I added a sprinkle of my favorite honey-oat granola on top too.

Delicious lemon blueberry muffins! So good!

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

These easy muffins would be perfect to bring to a spring brunch! My MOPS groups has brunch together every other week so I love trying out new recipes on my friends there! Thanks to excessive snow we’ve had some cancellations, but I suppose that just means more muffins for me. 😉

Now that I’m in the home stretch of pregnancy I’m eating smaller, more frequent meals and I have  enjoyed these lemon blueberry muffins as a bigger snack/smaller meal with a banana and a glass of almond milk. For some reason when pregnant breakfast always tastes good to me. Okay, breakfast ALWAYS sounds good to me, pregnant or not!

  2. Love that you learned to cook from the Betty Crocker cookbook. I got the 3-ring binder version when I was 16 and have found one for all my boys (as well as close friends) on eBay. It has been a staple in our home for 30+ years! Mine is well-loved as well, filled with notes on any hints I may have discovered. Betty’s Banana Nut Bread is in the oven right now and we can’t wait to have that first warm slice. Thank you for this recipe- I have blueberries in the fridge and will make the muffins very soon! Even though I have not baked them as yet, giving them a 5-star rating, as I know it will be fantastic.
