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

Ingredients:

  • 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!
