All Things Blueberry

‘Tis the season for all things blueberry. If you love berries, July is your golden month where almost all forms of berry are ripe and delicious. Blueberries came at their peak of freshness around July 4th, so get ready to start seeing blueberries popping into recipes at every turn. My favorite way to enjoy blueberries is by eating them fresh out of the carton as a snack, but if you like baking with berries here are a few great ways to incorporate this seasonal fruit into healthy treats.

Lemon Muffins

If you love lemon this recipe is for you! These delightful citrus treats are refreshing and delicious. They go great paired with vanilla yogurt and seasonal fruit.

2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
1/2 cup Clearly Organic Sugar
1/4 cup Clearly Organic Sesame Seeds, toasted (optional)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 lemons, zested and juiced
1 1/4 cup Clearly Organic Almond Milk
1/2 cup Clearly Organic Coconut Oil, melted
1 large egg
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Vanilla

For the lemon glaze:
1/2 cup whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup Clearly Organic Powdered Sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
Extra zest for garnish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners or grease with Clearly Organic cooking spray. Whisk flour, sugar, sesame seeds, baking powder, salt and lemon zest from 3 lemons together in a mixing bowl. In a separate small bowl whisk milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine. Pour batter into muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

While muffins are baking prepare glaze. Whisk together softened cream cheese, lemon juice and powdered sugar until smooth. When the muffins come out of the oven poke several holes in each muffin with the toothpick. Then drizzle glaze over the top and let cool for ten minutes. Garnish with lemon zest or a small lemon wedge if desired.
