Meyer Lemon Blueberry Muffins - Herbivore Triathlete

So I’d been seeing all these gorgeous recipes using Meyer lemons all over the blogosphere lately and was lamenting that I would most likely never get a chance to try one of the elusive Meyer lemons. You see, I live in a very small rural town. Most people have never heard of kale or beets or even avocado! To think that I would find a Meyer lemon at the grocery store seemed like a far fetched dream. So I browsed recipes and drooled and dreamed, one day maybe…

Imagine my delight and surprise when I saw a bag of Meyer lemons at the local Wal-Mart! I had to pick one up, there were so many recipes I wanted to try! I began pinning lemon recipes like a crazy lady and finally settled on a bread recipe as the first one to tackle. I was in the mood for muffins so adapted the recipe to my liking.

Meyer Lemon Blueberry Muffins
Adapted from Flour Mayhem

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 Meyer lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 425º F, you will turn the temperature down to 375º F after 5 minutes of baking the muffins. This “sky-high muffin” trick is one of Sally’s secrets to beautiful muffin tops.
  2. Fill muffin tin with liners or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest
  4. In a medium bowl combine milk, applesauce, sugar, agave and lemon juice.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  6. Fold in the blueberries.
  7. Spoon batter into muffin tins, it will be too thick to pour. Make sure to fill the tins ALL the way to the top for best results.
  8. Bake muffins at 425º F for 5 minutes then lower the temperature to 375º F for 18-20 minutes.
  9. Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool.
  10. Eat and enjoy with a pat of Earth Balance!
