Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ½ tablespoon unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg white at room temperature

  5. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the flour, and stirring until just barely incorporated.
  6. Gently fold the fresh blueberries into the batter.
  7. Divide the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
