    Happy Friday, friends! It’s time for another breakfast recipe! 🙂 While these Paleo lemon blueberry muffins are great for breakfast, they are also perfect for an afternoon snack or a treat with your afternoon coffee/tea.

    These paleo lemon blueberry muffins don’t have any added sugar or highly processed ingredients. They are also gluten free and grain free. I used almond meal (which is ground almonds) and coconut flour, and a little bit of maple syrup to sweeten them. I also added some lemon juice and lemon zest. They provide a great burst of tart flavor which is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the maple syrup and the juicy blueberries.  And when I took them out of the oven, they smelled like cake. So good!

    Healthy treat in the morning? Yes, please! You can make a whole batch of these and grab one (or two and three.. :)) in the mornings when you are in a hurry. These paleo lemon blueberry muffins are not overly sweet which is great because I usually crave more savory foods than sweets in the mornings.

    I loved how easy it was to make them. I made these last night, it literally took me 5 minutes to combine all ingredients and then in 25 minutes breakfast was ready.

    I have tried many paleo muffin recipes and this is the first that used 2 eggs and coconut flour with almound flour. The batter was not at all liquedy, i typically use an ice cream scoop and they scooped into a mold like play doh ish. I have them in the oven now and added some extra maple syrup since they looked more dry than normal, maybe a tbsp more of maple and the other half of lemon juice.. Hoping they come out okay with the consistency. Have you tried it with another egg yet? Interested to know if your batter is thick also and that is how it is supposed to be? I hate adding extra when rrying a new recipe if not needed.
