Lemon Blueberry Muffins

My kids have a love hate relationship with blueberries and I can’t figure out why. When we first met the kids JJ and Isabella love blueberries. Lele wasn’t a fan of blueberries. Now JJ doesn’t really care for them and Lele really likes them. Isabella only likes what mommy likes, so she loves blueberries. However we had some really good blueberries from Trader Joe’s that we were fighting over. So it just goes to show I really don’t know what my kids like, because they change their minds every day.

So I decided to make lemon blueberries muffins for them for snacks,  because they love blueberry muffins and lemon. I went with a glaze topping instead of a crumb topping. While I prefer a crumb topping, Lele doesn’t really like crumb toppings, which I just do not understand. I also thought the glaze topping would make less of a mess for a snack time. I am not really sure if the kids are making a mess at snack time or not with their homemade snacks, but the teachers haven’t complained yet. Honestly if they do it’s okay with me, because homemade is better than anything from the store. My kids are getting to the point where they really just want everything homemade. Plus my kids love being in the kitchen with me, so we are always baking and cooking together.

These muffins are bound to be a favorite and perfect anytime of the year. Even though blueberries are a Summer fruit and Lemons are a Winter fruit, you can find good ones year round. I love the freshness of lemon on rainy days and bursting blueberries on a war day.So it makes the perfect muffin to make anytime of the year.
