Light & Moist Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe: Superfood, Super Muffin

Right now, I am into cooking and baking with fresh summer blueberries. If I had to pick my favorite berry (that would be hard!), it would be blueberries. Not only are blueberries a superfood and loaded with health benefits, but they also taste amazing and can be used in so many different ways – from sweet to savory.

These light and moist lemon blueberry muffins are like taking a bite of summer. Here is your shopping list for this easy muffin recipe: butter, sugar, lemons for zest and juice, vanilla extract, fresh or frozen blueberries, an egg, flour, baking powder, salt and milk.

Serve these lemony blueberry muffins as a snack, for breakfast or dessert, or pack them in your lunchbox. Store the leftover muffins in an airtight container to keep them soft and moist.

Recipe Notes

  • If you use frozen blueberries, your muffins will not be yellow in color, but blue. They'll still taste delicious!
  • I should have put more batter into each muffin cup, so ended up with 15 smaller muffins.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Toss the blueberries with 1/4 cup of the flour in a bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and lemon zest until creamy. Add the lemon juice, vanilla and egg. Mix until combined well.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour and milk to the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries coated in flour.
  3. Spoon the batter into 12 lined or greased muffin cups. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 18 to 20 minutes.
