I will admit, I am not the world’s biggest blueberry muffin fan. That said, when you add some lemon and white chocolate to blueberry muffins, that my friends, is a game changer. These Lemon Blueberry Muffins with White Chocolate Chips are incredible. And you can also make them gluten free if you are so inclined!
This combination of lemon and blueberry works so well, with the bit of added sweetness from the white chocolate chips and a sprinkle of coarse sugar on top. These blueberry muffins are one heck of a great way to start the day. Or end the day, there’s no reason to relegate these to just breakfast hours.
Muffins are a staple in our house. Banana muffins, chocolate muffins, pumpkin muffins, butterscotch muffins… you get the idea. I love to make a big batch of muffins on the weekend and be ready for quick and easy breakfasts for the girls during the week. Muffins freeze wonderfully (I just toss mine in a zipper style freezer bag once cooled), so I often double batch my muffins when I make them.
We recently switched our youngest daughter to a gluten free diet, so I’ve been stepping more into the world of gluten free baking. While I’ve done well with very hearty oatmeal based muffins with success, I have not been able to replicate the lighter muffins like blueberry muffins. I’ve tried, but the results have been less than spectacular and nowhere near worthy of sharing here. So when a friend of mine started selling Wildtree products and mentioned that they have a gluten free muffin mix, I was anxious to try it. It’s a plain muffin mix that you doctor up however you like. Oh my word, we all LOVED the results. Nice big puffy bakery style muffins. The scent in the house while they were baking was divine. You would never for a moment think these were gluten free. They were amazing.
My husband, who doesn’t tend to be quite enthusiastic about muffins as I am, loved these. Something about the lemon with the blueberry is so wonderful. It gives it a light bright taste, really balancing the flavors, not too much lemon, not too much blueberry. Just right. You can leave out the white chocolate chips if you like, but wow, it really brings all the flavors together.
