Clean Eating Lemon Berry Muffins are the perfect combo. With zesty lemon + sweet seasonal berries – these are the best muffins you’ll ever eat!
Spring is one of my favorite seasons. I love being able to enjoy the beautiful weather outside with hikes, bike rides, etc. Unfortunately over the past week or so the weather has been less than great. It’s been raining almost every single day! So I’m trying to bring a little bit of spring on my own.
With Mother’s Day being this weekend, I wanted to come up with a new recipe to bring to brunch. Every year my family comes over to my house to celebrate all the awesome moms that we have. (Including my own!) We have your typical brunch staples.. eggs, pancakes, etc. This year – these Lemon Berry Muffins are joining the table.
These Lemon Berry Muffins are like spring wrapped up in a muffin! The fresh lemon zest combined with the sweet berries is seriously out of this world. We had a mix of strawberries and blueberries left over, so I threw them in the batter. You can really use any berries- but I recommend this combo!
The main reason we’ll be serving these on Mother’s Day ? My mom taste- tested them and loved them! I’m all for anything that I can do to make her day a little bit easier and take some of the stress of cooking away. (Although she can put out a breakfast, lunch or dinner for a group of people like it’s nothing!)
Are you doing anything fun to celebrate your moms this weekend? I hope these muffins make an appearance at your brunch table! 🙂
