Lemon Blueberry Muffins

These lemon blueberry muffins are a fun spin on traditional blueberry muffins. Light, airy, loaded with tender blueberries, and zesty lemon. Perfect for an on the go breakfast or a quick snack. This recipe calls for either fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen do not thaw, if using fresh, toss in a tablespoon of flour to coat so berries do not sink.
