Ingredients

Lemon blueberry muffins

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1 Packet collagen peptides
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Large egg
  • ¼ cup Melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup Milk (I used almond milk)
  • ½ cup Granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Lemon zest (or combination of lemon and lime zest)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Blueberries tossed in 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup Additional blueberries (for topping the muffins)

Lemon glaze

  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon zest (or combination of lemon and lime zest)
  • 1 cup Powdered sugar

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, collagen peptides and baking powder. Keep aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, add the egg, coconut oil, milk, sugar, yogurt and vanilla extract. Whisk everything together thoroughly.
  • Dump the dry mixture into this wet mixture and mix with a spatula until just combined. DO NOT over-mix!
  • Gently, fold the blueberries into this muffin batter.
  • Spray a cupcake tray with oil and use an ice cream scooper to distribute the batter into the pan. Each cavity should be about ¾ cup full.
  • Top off each muffin with a few additional blueberries.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Then, lower the temperature to 375 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown.
  • Allow the muffins to cool down before removing them from the pan.
  • While they are cooling, prepare the lemon glaze. In a mixing bowl, mix together lemon juice, lemon zest and powdered sugar until you have a smooth and thick mixture.
  • Pour a bit of this glaze on top of each muffin and enjoy!

Notes

Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
