Spring has arrived!

Well, sort of….it doesn’t quite feel like it here in the Midwest but I know beautiful weather, bright tree blossoms, and fragrant flowers are just around the corner.  I was delighted to see a few bulbs breaking through the soil in my back yard the other day.

These muffins are the perfect way to add a little sunshine to your life while we wait for the Spring weather to arrive.  These Lemon-Blueberry Muffins make the perfect breakfast on the go or an afternoon delight!  The lemon perks these muffins right up without over powering them and aides in allowing the blueberry flavor to shine.  Tastes like spring!  These muffins are super moist and you will never believe that they are gluten free, grain free, and dairy free!
