This is a KILLER recipe. It originally called for a 1/2 cup melted butter, but I’m trying to cut down on the calories, so I substituted plain Greek yogurt. Turned out amazing! Give it a try. Anything with a berry is pure heaven. p.s. They work out to be about 155 calories per muffin. HALLELUJAH!

2 c. flour

1/2 – 3/4 c. sugar

1 T. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

zest and juice of one lemon

1 egg

1 c. skim milk

1/2 c. plain yogurt

1 – 2 cups fresh blueberries

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat you egg, lemon juice, zest, milk and yogurt together. Using a wooden spoon, mix in your dry ingredients. Don’t over mix! Stir in blueberries and put in greased muffin tin in a preheated 375 oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Make 12 FULL muffins.

LEMON BUTTER TOPPING (when you don’t care about the calories!)

1/4 c. melted butter

2 T. lemon juice (or more to your liking)

1/2 cup sugar

Mix together until smooth and drizzle over slightly cooled muffins. Hello delicious.
