Lemon Blueberry Muffins

With temps staying below freezing, and yet additional snow predicted for here tomorrow, I am trying to invite a little spring into my life in as many ways possible. These lovely muffins fit the bill perfectly! This recipe comes to us from the ladies at Teaspoon of Spice, and was the perfect choice for this month's Secret Recipe Club.

I love that these muffins use some whole wheat flour, and are chock full of blueberries. They are a great way to start your morning, whether it's snowing or not.

Start by combining the blueberries and 1/4 cup of the flour in a small bowl. Toss to coat all the blueberries with the flour. This will help prevent the berries from sinking to the bottom.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining flour, sugar,

salt, baking powder and grated lemon peel.

In a large measuring cup, combine the melted butter, milk,

lemon juice, egg and vanilla. Whisk well to incorporate all the ingredients, then pour the wet ingredients into the dry.

Add the blueberries tossed with flour and stir gently to incorporate the berries.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups with the muffin batter

and bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

Bring some springtime into your life with these muffins!
