Healthy & Fresh Lemon Zest Blueberry Muffins

blueberriesFresh Ontario Blueberries are one of my favorite things about summertime 🙂 They just make me so happy! I find that they satisfy my sweet tooth and I don’t feel guilty since they are filled with anti-oxidants and other benefits I mentioned here.

Tonight I was doing some meal prep for the week and noticed I had wayyy too many blueberries, so I thought I would make some healthy muffins for breaky or to grab as an on the go snack.

Here they are:

IMG_3312Lemon Zest Blueberry Muffins:

1/4 cup coconut flour
1 Scoop of protein powder (I use Perfect Fit Protein
)
1 cup fresh blueberries
3 eggs (room temperature is best)
2 tbs coconut oil (make sure you melt this beforehand otherwise it will not mix properly)
3 Tbs lemon zest
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400° degrees. Mix wet ingredients (eggs, coconut oil, lemon juice & zest) in a small bowl (I used the magic bullet to really make sure everything was mixed). In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients (protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder and salt) and mix thoroughly.

Next, combine dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until there are no clumps. 

Fold blueberries into batter right before pouring into sprayed muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until center is cooked.

Makes 6 muffins! I doubled the recipe and plan to freeze the muffins for next weekend at the cottage!

If you make the muffins leave me a note and let me know how they were 🙂 I’d love to hear from you!
