lemon blueberry muffins

i feel that a work meeting "first thing" in the morning is the perfect opportunity to bring in a yummy treat to share. also, "first thing" in our office - that could mean 815, that could mean 1015, you never know...but i mean, that has nothing to do with this post.

i really wanted to bring in a blueberry crumble-coffee-crunch type cake, but although The Pioneer Woman's Blueberry Crumb Cake looks absolutely divine, i was saddened that there wasn't any lemon in it, and thought that should be saved for another day. the combination of lemon and blueberry to me - is - amazing.

i had bookmarked Joy Ever After's Lemon Blueberry Muffins when she posted last year and had yet to try them - so here we are.

i didn't have the correct amount of yogurt, so i added a little milk to help it out. i also used honey-greek yogurt instead of plain. the muffins turned out good, but unfortunately were more dense than i would have liked. definitely use the yogurt amount specified in the recipe. next time i think i would add more lemon zest and some lemon juice - for me it just wasn't enough!

I love lemon and blueberry together. You know what I think it could use... a lemon glaze on top! That would help with the lemon flavor and make it yummy!
