Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat white flour see notes for substitutions
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or substitute with granulated or brown sugar
  • cup coconut oil or your favorite
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or your favorite dairy or non dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries if using frozen, thaw slightly and blot dry with a paper towel

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a standard muffin pan with 12 paper liners.  Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    1 3/4 cup whole wheat white flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon salt
  • In a large bowl, whisk the sugar, eggs and oil vigorously until frothy, about 1 minute. Add the milk, lemon zest, juice and vanilla, and whisk until well blended.
    3/4 cup coconut sugar, ⅓ cup coconut oil, 2 large eggs, 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir just until almost combined, then gently fold in the blueberries.
    1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the muffin batter evenly between the (12) muffin cups. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and the top of the muffins spring back when gently pressed.
  • Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes, then remove the muffins from the pan and cool completely on the wire rack.

Notes

  • Pro tip:  Fresh or frozen blueberries may be used. If using frozen, thaw them slightly and blot dry with a paper towel before adding them to the batter.
  • Store lemon blueberry muffins in an air tight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or in the refrigerator for up to one week.  They may be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • The whole wheat white flour may be subbed with all whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, or a combination of both (1 cup all purpose flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour).
  • For an extra special touch, top the muffins with the lemon glaze from my lemon glazed baked donuts recipe.
