Tips & Suggestions
1 You can use fresh blueberries, but bake muffins at 350° for approx 18 to 20 minutes.
2 When you have a recipe calling for just lemon juice, zest an organic lemon & store it in a small glass container (like a spice jar) in the freezer. That way when you have a recipe calling for just zest, like this one, you'll have it on hand & nothing goes to waste.
