Every time I see meyer lemons at the grocery store, I get excited. They're only available in January-March around here. I'm not sure about other places.
I love regular old lemons just fine, but meyer lemons - I adore. They're sweeter and have more of a floral scent than regular lemons.
I like to pair lemon and blueberry together, so that's what I did when I created this muffin recipe. Luckily, blueberries were on sale right when I bought the ingredients for this recipe. I think it's kind of strange how blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are all on sale right now... hmm.
These muffins are nice and moist because I used lemon juice, oil, honey, and milk in them. I also added a little bit of ground flax seed to these as well. I'm really liking the flavor of freshly toasted, ground flax seed lately.
That's all for today, I'm afraid. I'm so boring. This week has been really boring and uninteresting. I've just been doing the usual... cooking, trying out new classes at the gym, and shopping on Amazon. Ha. Off to go read my book! Have a good weekend! Doing anything exciting?
You should bake these muffins! They're moist, fluffy and delicious.
2 tablespoons flax seed, toasted
2 large egg whites + 1 large egg
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup Meyer Lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon finely grated Meyer Lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups blueberries
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
Grind flax seed until finely ground.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together ground flax, egg whites, egg, brown sugar, oil, lemon juice, honey, lemon zest, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined. Whisk in milk and flour until just combined; stir in blueberries until combined.
Divide batter into muffins cups. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons raw sugar, if desired. Bake 16-18 minutes or until golden brown and well risen. Cool 10 minutes before transferring muffins to wire racks to cool.
