I love a healthy muffin. I'm a little obsessed with these Banana Bread Protein Muffins, which have been my number one go-to if I'm in a muffin-eatin mood, but OH MY - these Lemon Blueberry Muffins might have surpassed the Banana Muffins by a zest of lemon. Absolutely divine. Mouth watering, flavor bursting, divine.

I think it's the fresh lemon zest, hands down...but those sweet succulent blueberries definitely lend a hand in their delicious-ness, too!

Know what you won't find in these muffins??? Refined white flour, refined sugar, and crop oils. Just real, wholesome, ingredients right here friends! They can EASILY be made gluten free if you use certified gluten free oat flour (Bob's Red Mill makes it).
