Blueberry Lemon Muffins

What’s a girl to do when she cannot decide between two recipes?  Two become one, of course!  (Did that remind anyone else of that Spice Girl song?  When two become oooooone…)  I was in the mood for lemon goodies, but I wanted to make something with blueberries.  When I saw that the grocery store had Chobani yogurt on sale last week, I knew just what to make.

Sometimes things just work together, and in this case, blueberry + lemon = win.

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups flour (I used all-purpose, but I was out of ww pastry.  Either should work.)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (aka: white devil)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 TBS lemon zest
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 chia egg (1 TBS chia + 2 TBS water)
  • 1 container Chobani lemon yogurt
  • 3/4 cup milk (I unsweetened almond, but skim dairy should be fine.)
  • 3 TBS oil (I used olive, but other oils should be fine too.)
  • 1 cup blueberries (1 cup is a little berry-crazy, which is how I like it, 3/4 might be good too)

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix your chia egg and let it get all gummy while you prep the other ingredients.  Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients, through salt.
  3. In the bowl with chia egg, add the lemon zest, lemon juice, yogurt, milk, and oil.
  4. Stir wet into dry ingredients, but do not over-mix.  Fold in blueberries.  Bake 21-26 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mine baked for 23 minutes.  Leave muffins in the pan for 5-10 minutes before cooling on wire rack.

It’s difficult to get a good picture in this house, especially if you want decent morning lighting.  Between a husband who doesn’t understand, “let it cool” and cats who think they run the show, I was lucky to get one decent picture.

Enjoy the muffins!  If you make them, please let me know what you think.

  1. Any recipe that calls for Chobani and blueberries is a winning recipe in my book. NICE! Can’t wait to try.

  2. Hahaha I used to love that Spice Girls song! And these muffins look fantastic. I wish we could get lemon Chobani here in Canada… they’ve only released 4 flavours here so far! :(

  3. I’ve been putting the lemon stevia in yogurt with blueberries. IT’s such a great combination! These look great!

  4. First – I am eating a lemon cho and blueberries right now. Seriously, not joking.

    What is a chia egg?

    • Tiff says:

      It’s 1 TBS chia (ground chia may work better, but my whole seeds did okay) and 2 TBS water mixed together. I really like flax “eggs” too!

  17. These lemon blueberry muffins look fantastic, and they just happen to be two of my favorite flavors. I can’t wait to try them. By the way, your cat cracks me up. Mine tends to get into our food too. He’s eaten my salads, sun dried tomatoes and even a recent batch of Kale Chips. I literally cannot turn my back on him.

  18. lemon and blueberry is such a winning combo. These sound amazing Tiff!
