Lemon Berry Breakfast Muffins.
My grandmother from Alabama was a baker and so is my mama. And they are in part the reason that I started this blog, to create healthier recipes from family favorites. As you can imagine, southern baking back in the day was often laced with lard and loads of sugar!
These Lemon Berry Breakfast Muffins were adapted from my granny’s lemon cupcake recipe and were one of the treats that I made that first year we were married.
These Lemon Berry Breakfast Muffins are made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, lemons, blueberries and raspberries and they make a wholesome snack or breakfast!
Don’t need 12 muffins laying around the house? Neither does this family of 3! I freeze muffins in a freezer safe bag and pop them in the microwave for about 20 seconds when it’s breakfast tine.
