Blueberry lemon muffins

Happy June! How did we get here ??  I am so looking forward to summer. It’s been pretty busy here in the Murphy household, as I am sure anyone with kids can relate. In addition to the end of school activities, I have been busy making these lemon blueberry muffins until they are perfect, I am pretty sure I nailed it this time. The combination of lemon and blueberries is a family favorite  and these muffins don’t last long in our household. Whether your looking for last minute school lunch ideas, after school snack or simple looking for a really good, moist blueberry lemon muffin you came to the right place.



If you follow me on instagram, you know I have been making these muffins regularly, I think I finally got the perfect lemon and blueberry ratio without it being too dense or oily. Although the they all tasted amazing something just wasn’t right. I try to bake something  twice a week for school lunches, I like knowing whats going into my daughter’s bellies.
