One of my favorite mid-morning snacks is a muffin. They’re so easy to grab and pack in lunches and taste so good with a cup of coffee or green tea.
It has become a weekend tradition now where I make muffins with my girls as part of meal prep. They love stirring and pouring in ingredients and of course the best part: taste-testing the batter.
Even though these muffins have quite a few ingredients, they’re easy to make since you can put all ingredients into one big bowl. I love the burst of fresh blueberries in these and the subtle lemon flavor. So good!
Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups bran
- 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- zest of one lemon
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
Mix all ingredients together, starting with the bran and milk. Then, add in all dry ingredients, followed by all wet ingredients. Gently fold in blueberries. FYI: The batter will be fairly thick.
Divide batter evenly into greased muffin tin. This should make 12 large muffins.
Bake in 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until a stick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean.
Let cool slightly, then remove from muffin tin gently and let completely cool on a rack. Enjoy!
