I am sharing a yummy Lemon Blueberry Muffin recipe.Lemons and blueberries are a very peculiar pair. Who would have thought that tart lemons and sweet blueberries would pair so well together? But they are an amazing flavor combination. They are like the odd couple….a delicious culinary odd couple.

Recipe Tips and Instructions
Tip 1: While this recipe is absolutely delicious with fresh blueberries, you can certainly use frozen blueberries too. Hopefully, you were able to stock up freeze blueberries that you bought at your local farmers market to last through the winter months. I love to freeze blueberries to use during the winter months in muffins, cobblers, and crisps.
Tip 2: As will all muffins and quick breads, don’t over mix the batter.
Tips 3: This recipe has a bright lemon flavor, be sure to use fresh lemon zest and lemon juice to the best flavor.
When making these Lemon Blueberry Muffins, these ingredients are helpful to have at home.
