Blueberry lemon muffins

Blueberry Breakfast Muffins are perfect for any day of the week. They are made with whole foods and are gluten and dairy free. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe. I often will add in extras to my muffins to make them more heart healthy. Flax seed, hemp seeds, raw nuts and seeds are a great addition to these blueberry breakfast muffins.

Blueberries contain a plant compound called anthocyanin. This gives blueberries both their blue colour and many of their health benefits.

Blueberries are chock full of health benefits. For 1 cup of blueberries they contain:

Fiber- 4 grams

Vitamin C- 24% of RDA

Vitamin K- 36% of RDA

Manganese- 25% of RDA

Water- 85%
