Lemon Blueberry Muffins

  • lemon blueberry muffins isagenix1 cup (120g) whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp (5g) lemon zest (about 1 medium lemon)
  • ½ tbsp (7g) coconut oil or unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup (60mL) agave
  • ¼ cup (60g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) lemon juice (about half of 1 medium lemon)
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) nonfat milk
  • ¾ cup (125g) fresh blueberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and lightly coat 6 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg white, and vanilla. Stir in the agave and Greek yogurt, mixing until no large lumps remain. Stir in the lemon juice. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the flour, and stirring until just barely incorporated. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. Divide the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 20-22 minutes, or until the tops feel lightly firm to the touch. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack.

Notes: This recipe is easily doubled to serve more!

White whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour may be substituted for the whole wheat pastry flour.

I recommend using fresh blueberries since frozen tend to bleed and turn the batter gray. However, if using frozen, the bake time may need to be increased.
