Tips For the Best Lemon Blueberry Muffins

1. Make sure eggs are room temperature. Room temperature eggs combine more evenly throughout the batter which creates a smooth mixture that traps air and expands in the oven. The expansion of air leads to a light and fluffy muffin texture.

2. Don’t over-mix the batter. Gently combine wet and dry ingredients using a rubber spatula.

3. Pack flours when measuring. Scoop flour into measuring cups and level off with the back of a knife.

4. Check the expiration date on the baking soda. Baking soda helps baked goods rise and if your baking soda has expired it could leave you with flat muffins.

5. Check your oven temperature. Ovens usually takes about 10 additional minutes to reach the target temperature after the “beep” sound. I use an oven thermometer to ensure the temperature is accurate. This can prevent over-baking which results in dry muffins.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

Yes! Just make sure you add them thaw and drain the frozen blueberries. When incorporating them into the muffin batter, don’t over-mix, because the blueberry juice could turn the batter green.

How to Store These Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Any leftover muffins can be stored either on the countertop, in the fridge, or in the freezer as well!

Stored on the countertop these muffins will last about 2 days, and up to a week if kept in the fridge.

To reheat, microwave for about 20 seconds to prevent overheating and continue to heat in small increments until desired warmth is reached.

These muffins also freeze really well and can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months!

That means these are perfect for meal prep and making extra to keep in the freezer so you can take them out as needed.

To reheat, microwave for about 40 seconds to start and continue to heat in small increments until your muffin is as warm as you’d like it.
