Blueberry Lemon Muffins

blueberry muffins 2We finally got a break in the heat this weekend. I don’t want to seem like I am complaining about the weather but it was nice to see some rain so I could turn on the oven and do some baking. I am always on the hunt for healthier snack options for the girls and D. As I was doing my weekly meal planning I came across these lemon ricotta blueberry muffins from fraiche nutrition.  So I decided to make a similar version and was successful. Moist sweet blueberry lemon muffins made with whole wheat flour, oat flour, and yogurt. One word to describe these muffins:  YUM.

Most muffins are full of sugar, like your eating dessert for breakfast. The good thing about baking is you can reduce the sugar without compromising taste which is what I did with these muffins. With the addition of seasonal blueberries and lemon provided a lot of flavour. For moisture I added plain greek yogurt. If you prefer a sweeter version you can easily add a crumble. These muffins were enjoyed by all, especially my 20 month old sweet pea.
