HEALTHY BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS

Want some delicious blueberry lemon muffins that are totally healthy and dairy free? These little goodies are just that! I serious cannot believe these tastes so good, and are healthy! What a win! I have been searching for different things to bake and since we had both, blueberries and lemons, this was the perfect dessert.






These healthy blueberry lemon muffins are so tasty and it’s hard to believe that they are dairy free! The blueberries, and the lemons, are just bursting with delicious flavor. Eating healthy isn’t bad, if I do say so myself.  I know you will enjoy these very much!



I do wish that these muffins would have risen a little more. I needed to fill them all the way to the top of the muffin tin/liner. So when you are making yours, make sure to fill them to the top.
