We love sharing the odd recipe here on the Little Boo-Teek blog and today’s recipe is a favourite with my two kids (who are four and two).
These Blueberry & Lemon muffins are perfect for a school lunch box treat or just for a healthy morning tea at home. If you have kids who love to bake, it’s a relatively easy recipe with lots of ingredients to pour and stir!
2 ½ cups self-raising flour
½ cup coconut sugar (you could use castor sugar or brown sugar too)
½ cup melted butter
½ cup of milk
Splash of vanilla essence
Juice + zest of one small lemon
Blueberries (we use fresh or frozen depending on what we have – measurements are a little off because my kids help with this part but I would guess about one cup of blueberries)
Combine flour and sugar.
Whisk milk, butter, egg and vanilla essence and add to flour/sugar mixture.
Stir until just combined and add the zest, juice and blueberries
Extra: I usually stir in a tablespoon or so of chia seeds at this point for a little superfood boost. They don’t add any taste and my kids have actually started to call them ‘sprinkles’ and sometimes ask to sprinkle extra on top before baking!
Spoon into a greased muffin tray and bake for 25-30 minutes on 180 degrees
Makes 15 muffins (from memory!)
