Lemon blueberry bran muffins

Do you remember the first thing you baked? I do, it was muffins. I loved to baked muffins when I was younger. Fast forward 20 + years and here I am baking muffins for my crew. I made these lemon blueberry bran muffins a couple of times over the last few weeks until I perfected them and they are ready for you! These lemon blueberry bran muffins are perfect for breakfast, school lunches, and/or a mid afternoon pick me up.

I love making muffins. These blueberry bran muffins were a big hit in our house.  I love the combination of lemon and blueberries and decided to improve the nutritional value by adding oat bran for some extra fiber. I am always nervous when I tinker  to improve the nutritional value of foods, I mean some foods are easier than others, muffins fall into the latter category. I usually add hemp hearts or use 100% whole wheat flour. But this time I reduced the flour and added oat bran for a little substance. After a couple of times I think I got it.

These muffins are:

  • Delicious
  • Easy to make
  • Nutritious
