Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins: moist ‘n delicious healthy lemon blueberry muffins made with healthy, whole ingredients.
Happy start of the week! I know, I know… who really even likes those anyway? But what if I told you that today’s scrumdiddilyumptious (brain teaser typing that sucker…) Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins could brighten your day?
Zesty, refreshing lemon flavor. Bright, juicy blueberry oomph. Cozy, comforting, homemade muffin delight. How can those three things not help you kick this week off right? 🙂 Oooh, I rhymed!
Before I go on more about how friggin soft ‘n tender today’s healthy lemon blueberry muffins are (or how much delicious lemon flavor and blueberry goodness are packed into every bite), why don’t we dive right in? 😉 (I could really go on for about 4 more hours. But I won’t. 😉 )
Let’s bake this!
How to Make Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners.
Sift together all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Warm up the water and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Then, pour that into a medium mixing bowl along with the rest of the wet ingredients: lemon juice, lemon zest, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until well mixed.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients to create your healthy lemon blueberry muffin batter. Fold in blueberries!
Pour your healthy lemon blueberry muffin batter into the prepared muffin pan—all the way to the top for big muffins, ¾ of the way for smaller muffins.
Bake, Cool and Enjoy
Bake, cool and enjoy the best healthy lemon blueberry muffins ever!
The Healthy Ingredients You Need
I made sure to pack these healthy lemon blueberries with enough blueberries to keep you happy! 😉 Blueberries are a wonderfully low calorie, antioxidant-rich superfood that’s packed with healthy nutrients. In just 1 cup, you can expect 24% of your RDI (recommended daily intake) of vitamin C, 36% of your RDI in vitamin K and 25% of your RDI of manganese.
Lemons not only taste good (okay, fine… when added to something else, such as blueberry muffins!), but they are also packed with vitamin C, can prevent kidney stones and can help to improve digestive health. Lemons also boast plant compounds, hesperidin and diosmin, that can lower cholesterol, thereby improving heart health.
I made sure to include the amazing almond flour in today’s healthy lemon blueberry muffins recipe. Almond flour is made with just 1 ingredient: almonds. As such, it has a low glycemic index, is rich in healthy fats and packed with prebiotic fiber that’s beneficial to digestive health. Bonus: almonds are rich in antioxidants and vitamin E.
We’re kicking out the usual bleached all-purpose flour and using healthy, whole oat flour instead. Oats are one of my most beloved healthy ingredients to use in my healthy baking pantry. They are a wonderful source of antioxidants, and add soluble fiber and nutrients to these healthy lemon muffins. Oats keep you full and satisfied for longer, and can help to lower cholesterol, leading to better heart health.

Imagine fresh, light lemon flavor that’s crisp and refreshing… all the while accented by bright, juicy blueberry goodness. The tartness of the lemon and the sweetness of the blueberries complement each other perfectly in these healthy lemon blueberry muffins.
These are my favorite soft and tender healthy lemon blueberry muffins. The moist and tender crumb is truly exceptional and totally worth the homemade muffin effort. 😉
