There is seriously nothing more comforting than a sweet fluffy blueberry muffin with your morning cup of coffee to start off the day and this recipe is legit a total winner! These perfectly moist, lightly sweetened lemon blueberry muffins are made with almond flour, Greek yogurt and sweetened with a little honey (zero refined sugar) so not only are they delicious, but you can really feel GOOD about eating them too. Oh and you want to know the best part?? You basically just throw everything into your blender and voila! Super easy muffins that you can literally make in just minutes.
Lemon + blueberry might be one of my favorite flavor combinations, especially in bread and muffin recipes, and lemme tell you – these puffed up so beautifully! I was so excited to eat them that I could barely wait for them to come out of the oven! I actually ended up bringing these into work and they were such a huge hit among everyone in the office that I knew I had to share them with you all too!
Now if you like your muffins really sweet you may want to add a little more honey or even sugar if you so choose, but I really thought the honey, lemon (plus zest!), vanilla and blueberries were the perfect combination of sweetness that these muffins needed, but hey everyone has different tastes!
Oh and if you don’t have a blender or if your blender is too small to hold this much batter then that’s okay too! A food processor or even your hand mixer will work just fine. You just really want to make sure to whip the batter really well as that is the secret to making these muffins nice and fluffy.
Am I the only one that thinks it’s crazy we had a snow day yesterday?! I was really enjoying our 70 and 75 degree weather we got a small taste of last week then BOOM, crazy amounts of snow. Ugh the worst. I mean don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t love a good snow day?? But that would have gladly been welcomed in oh say January or February…..not after dusting off my maxi dresses last weekend! I think it’s safe to say I’m ready for spring!
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!

*I prefer my muffins slightly sweet and love this combo of honey, lemon and vanilla with blueberries, but feel free to add more honey if you like your muffins sweeter!
