Sometimes, your dad buys a whole carton of blueberries and forgets to tell you about it. Sometimes, you just need to suck it up and get baking!
When life hands you blueberries, you make muffins! And not just any muffins, delicious Lemon Blueberry Banana Muffins by Drizzle Me Skinny. Like I said (wrote?) earlier, my dad bought a LARGE container of blueberries, and since I haven’t baked blueberry muffins in what could possibly be years, I went searching for a delicious yet low point recipe. That’s when I came across this 2 SmartPoints/71 calories one! If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is 😮
I had to switch some ingredients up to work with what I had, but they still turned out great if I do say so myself. Rather than frozen blueberries, I used my ridiculously large carton of fresh ones, and even ended up using a little more than 1 cup (I like my blueberry muffins to be loaded!). If you decide to give these muffins a try and are stuck with fresh blueberries like I was, then don’t forget coat them in flour to avoid sinking! Kate a.k.a Drizzle Me Skinny gave the option of using lemon or vanilla yogurt in the mix; I went with the vanilla but added more lemon juice in to make up for it.
There are a couple of things I’d do differently next time, and if you’re about to drop everything and bake these muffins, take the following into consideration! The banana I used to mash up wasn’t all that ripe; therefore, the muffins didn’t turn out as sweet as they could have. Additionally, these muffins STICK to paper liners, especially if you’re looking to eat them the same day you bake them (I had a few the next day and they didn’t stick as badly) – I suggest investing in a higher quality liner or baking sheet.
All in all, these muffins were just what I needed for a pick me up this week, and are so low in points that I’ve been having them as a breakfast side or as a dessert! Make sure you check out Drizzle Me Skinny for a TON more low point recipes. Honestly, she’s the queen of Weight Watchers desserts! Let me know if you give this recipe a try too! Enjoy 🙂
