Blueberry Muffins

My boyfriend had some blueberries that needed to be used, so of course I said I’d take them to make blueberry muffins. I’m kind of addicted to these. I might even be eating one right now before bed. My boyfriend said it’s the best blueberry muffin he’s had in a long time (he’s probably a little biased, but that’s OK!) I planned to take a bunch to work this week, but now I’m not sure there will be any left.

The lemon is a nice touch. It adds a hint of lemon flavor without being overpowering. The blueberries also sink a bit as they cook. That’s totally fine because these don’t have a ton of rise to them, but they aren’t dense either. There are also more blueberries inside that what it looks like on the outside of the muffins. It’s a nice blueberry surprise when you take the first bite.
