Lemon-Blueberry Morning Muffins (Gluten Free & Vegan)

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016 | Read time: 1 minute

Bakery muffins are often so sugary they could never pass as a healthy breakfast. These lemon-blueberry muffins, on the other hand, are packed with sweet, juicy blueberries and have much less of the refined sweet stuff. Instead, you get a home-baked morning treat that won’t send you nose-diving into your keyboard later. Bonus: lemon zest and lemon juice make for a brighter, more moist muffin that’s so flavorful you would never guess the recipe is gluten-free and vegan.
