Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins

I’m about to tell you something that I usually keep quiet, and I’m asking you not to judge. A major staple of my children’s diets is cream cheese. They slather it on just about everything. From what I understand, it makes my cooking more palatable. So you can imagine the horror when we run out of the beloved food. We’re talking tears and hunger strikes. Not really. Okay, sometimes.

During a recent visit from my mom, we discovered while preparing breakfast that we had no cream cheese. My mom rushed to the store in the hopes of heading off a cream cheese meltdown, and in her haste accidentally grabbed this…

Blueberry Cream Cheese

Best. Mistake. Ever. This stuff is gooooooood. You should get some. Go now. You can read the rest of this when you get home.

Are you back? Anyway, the children wouldn’t touch the blueberry cream cheese with a pole, but the grown ups devoured it in no time at all. Then we bought more. When I wasn’t eating it, I was thinking about it. I knew it was destined for more than just toast. And so it became the inspiration for these Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins.

Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup apple sauce

Juice and zest of one lemon

6 ounce container of lemon flavored Greek yogurt

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed

Blueberry cream cheese

Grease a 12 cup muffin tin and set aside. Preheat oven to 400.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add the applesauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon yogurt. Stir to combine.

In a separate small bowl, combine the flour, bakind soda, baking powder, and salt.

Pour dry ingredients into the medium bowl with the wet ingredients and stir to combine just until everything is incorporated. Fold in the blueberries. Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin cups and bake 15-17 minutes until tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Top each warm muffin with a generous tablespoon of blueberry cream cheese.
