Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Seems like there are a lot of people making blueberry muffins lately. I keep seeing posts with new recipes using juicy fresh blueberries out there. I've made other recipes as well, but since I've been trying really hard to watch what I am eating I wanted to try a lightened one. I love blueberry muffins and I had picked up a container of fresh blueberries from the farmer's market last week that was just screaming to be made into muffins.

I found a recipe on Cooking Light for Lemon Blueberry Muffins. For once, I had all the ingredients on hand since I had picked up some low-fat buttermilk for another recipe I ended up not having time to make.

The recipe was simple to make and was in the oven within 10 minutes. I had made the Melt in Your Mouth Blueberry Muffins a few months back and those were really wonderful so my hope is that I can find a lightened version of that recipe. As the Lemon Blueberry Muffins baked the scent was mouth-watering. I had visions of making them over and over again before even tasting them. They rose beautifully and the blueberries were really juicy. I didn't make the glaze since I will be nibbling on them for breakfast throughout the week, and I wasn't sure they would hold up well if they were glazed in advance of serving them.

My Oldest is my go-to tester and he didn't care for them. So, I think I have some tinkering ahead of me with the other recipe that he did like. Even though I enjoyed these muffins, I need to find a lighter one that my family will enjoy as well.

I do like a good blueberry lemon muffin but I agree that finding a low fat one that is tasty enough can be tough. Thanks for the mention :)

I agree - lowfat muffins are hard. But these do sound delicious!

I love blueberry and lemon together. These muffins look really good. I have a feeling my kids would gobble them up.

I have yet to find a light muffin recipe that I like. I hope you find it for me. :)

Katie said...

It's so hard to find a blueberry muffin everyone can enjoy. Can't we just pretend those huge, delicious, monstrosities they sell at costco are actually good for you? Kthanks. ;)

I am in the mood to make muffins today, it's rainy and cloudy out. Yours look beautiful!

I've had this recipe bookmarked for quite some time now. I love the lemon blueberry combo. Too bad your little guy didn't love them.

I have been making this exact recipe since you posted it, and must say, best I've had! Muffins are a daily make in our home, and this one hits the muffin menu at least once a week.

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
