Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins make the perfect pairing with a cup of coffee on a Spring morning. Not to mention its stellar nutritional profile, low in sugar and full of healthy fats from almond flour.
Anyone else feeling like Spring will never come? Over here in Michigan we spring forward our clocks this weekend and I couldn't be more excited! Well not for the loss of sleep but because we are one step closer to Springtime! Nothing says Spring to me more than bright lemon blueberry muffins. These make the house smell amazing and are super soft and moist.
They are made with almond flour which for some of you, might be a new ingredient.

Hi! These turned out delicious. I made mini muffins instead and was curious if the nutrition info was based on a standard size muffin (12 muffin pan). Thanks!
Hi Lauren! Thanks for making them! The nutrition info is based on 12 regular sized muffins!
I tried your recipe for these muffins exactly, however my batter was not able to be poured. It turned out more stiff. It was wet but able to be molded into balls. What could I have added to make it more runny/able to be poured? I was afraid to put too much water in them to thin them out. Also note to anyone trying this recipe: unless you are familiar with Meyer lemon flavor I would not recommend substituting them for a regular lemon in this recipe (has a very pepper like flavor). They would have tasted great if it weren't for the pepper flavor from the Meyer lemon.
Hey Christina! Not sure what went wrong with the stiffness. I always tell people make sure not to pack in almond flour because it is very absorbent. It should be scooped into a cup with a spoon like you would with normal flour. Also I guess the size of lemon you got could factor into how much fluid is in the batter. And thank you for the Meyer lemon tip!
