Blueberry Lemon Muffins

So I got a call from my Mom when I was a work saying 'Can you pick up some muffins when you get off?' 

'The pre-made ones? Why?' 

'Because it is a lady at work's birthday tomorrow and she loves muffins'

'Fine. I'll make you some muffins'

So Happy Birthday Lady! (I have obviously forgotten your name plus have never met you, but Happy Birthday all the same! Hope you enjoyed your birthday treat!)

The original recipe says, fill the muffins tins to almost the top. Well, don't fill them up that much! I did and they completely puffed over, too much so. So I would say go for 1/2-3/4 full. I love a good muffin top, but lets not go crazy here.

The lemon really adds a nice flavor to the muffins. It makes them feel fresh and light. That hint of citrus that is not to overpowering and makes me want to eat them for breakfast all the time. Especially when this weather is getting to hot here. These are not those heavy greasy muffins that can give a muffin a bad rep.

Mmmm crumbly topping. I love the crumbly bits. 

Will finish writing tonight, off to work now!
