Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bites

Blueberries and lemon go hand in hand, and these Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bites are such a fresh and comforting springtime treat.  Warm and fluffy, they work wonderfully as either a convenient breakfast on the go, or for a more leisurely morning at home (paired with an iced coffee on the side). They’re also nice to have on hand when the afternoon sweet tooth arrives!

Whether you’re enjoying them fresh from the oven, or reheated in the microwave, these are definitely best enjoyed at warm temperatures.  This will ensure peak taste and texture!

Be it the sprinkled sugar on top, or the lemon glaze, choosing at least one of these toppings is what will tie these little muffins all together.  The batter is minimally sweet, so the extra sweetness on top in either topping choice is a must.  The sprinkled sugar option is quick and easy, and the glaze option will provide an extra dose of lemon.  My recommendation would be to go with the sprinkled sugar if you want them for breakfast, but the lemon glaze if you’re looking for something a little more “dessert-y”.

Servings: 12 Muffins

Ingredients:

MUFFINS

  • 2/3 Cup Unsalted Butter (melted
  • 3/4 Cup Cane Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1.5 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1.5 Cups Fresh Blueberries

TOPPING

Sprinkled Sugar

  • 3 – 4 Tsp Decorative / Demerara Sugar

OR

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Zest
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice

Directions:

(If opting for the glaze, make this first and set it aside – Simply stir together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl)

Preheat the oven to 350º

Line your muffin tray with muffin liners

Prepare the lemon zest and set aside

Melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave

Add the sugar to the bowl

Add the egg

Beat the butter, sugar, and egg together until smooth

Add in the greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla, and beat slowly again

In a second smaller bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt with a fork

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and blend until smooth

Gently stir in the blueberries

Spoon the batter into the muffin liners (they will be on the fuller side) 

If the sprinkled sugar is your topping of choice, add it here before baking

Bake for 20 minutes

If the glaze is your topping of choice, add it to taste once the bites have finished baking and cooled slightly, and then let it solidify

Rewarm whenever ready to eat

Enjoy!

[Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the fridge, and warmed in the microwave.]

Peanut Butter Blueberry Banana Smoothie

If you’re a fan of smoothies with a milkshake-like consistency, this Peanut Butter Blueberry Banana Smoothie is for you!  It’s ridiculously thick, has no added sugar, and is made with just 4 basic ingredients!

Whether you’re enjoying it for breakfast at home or on the go, as post-workout fuel, or as a mid-afternoon snack, this smoothie is super satisfying and refreshing! It’s packed with protein, several servings of colorful fruit, fiber, and more. The greek yogurt and peanut butter make it super creamy. You’ll love it on a warm spring or summer day!

My personal favorite methods to freeze these fruits:

  • Bananas: Peel and dice them while they’re fresh and on the riper side, then store them in an airtight container in the freezer
  • Blueberries: Wash them while they’re fresh, dry them off, then store them in an airtight container in the freezer

Small glass food storage containers are my preference over ziplock bags as they’re more eco-friendly!

Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls

When I’m in need of quick and easy, I love coming back again and again to a combination like these Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls.  The ingredients are likely items that you have in the refrigerator or pantry already, and certain ingredients can absolutely be substituted for what you have on hand!

Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls Components:

The Plain Greek Yogurt – Use whatever variety you love!  I enjoy a nonfat option but a full fat choice would be delicious as well.

The Cereal – This is mostly for texture and crunch, but I do really love the flavor profile of a Wheat Squares or Wheat Waffles option.  A similar cereal of choice or a granola would work here as well!

The Blueberries – I love the Frozen Wild Blueberries for their small size and the way that the juices melt into the mix, but use what’s available to you!

The Peanut Butter – I love a peanut butter that includes the taste of salt.  For me, having that ever so slight sweet and salty combination makes all the difference, which is why in my particular ratios I tend to go pretty heavy on the peanut butter!

I’ve linked all of my personal favorites within the ingredients list, but the point of this easy meal/snack is that it’s customizable to your preferences!
