Lemon and Blueberry Muffins

It has been quite some time since my last recipe, and for that I apologise. But the Christmas season and festivities got the better of me and I simply didn’t have time…which in my opinion is how the holidays should be, spent with family and friends!

Anyway, kicking of 2017 with an absolute cracker of a recipe for you! Lemon and blueberry muffins, made with creamy natural yoghurt and zesty lemons which pack a zingy punch…whats not to like? I admit a little spring like for January, but who doesn’t like starting the count down to sun and summer a little early?

These muffins are refined sugar free, and are only made with a small amount of butter which can be subbed for dairy free butter if necessary. They are so light and fluffy, with the yoghurt making it super moist and simply delicious. As a bonus there are no fancy ingredients that you won’t already have…with perhaps the exception of some kind of unrefined sugar substitute. Perfect for grabbing on the go, a quick light breakfast or a healthy mid day snack!
