Ah the humble muffin. So versatile. So delicious. And they just happen to be perfect for school lunches or breakfasts on the go. And my latest muffins recipe is YUM. These Blueberry Lemon and Sour Cream Muffins are a variation of my Strawberry Sour Cream Muffins which are super popular and a fantastic freezer friendly bake.

These muffins are reasonably low in added sugar with only 1/2 cup of honey and the blueberries as sweeteners. These Blueberry Lemon and Sour Cream Muffins are a pretty good source of protein for a baked good. Which is great when you want to pop them in the lunchbox!

Also, these muffins are nut free so great for school lunches. They are made with wholemeal flour and oats so have additional fibre too.

Substitutions

If you don’t have sour cream you could substitute for greek yogurt or ricotta. You could also use maple syrup instead of the honey in this recipe, which is especially important if serving these muffins for under ones. I have used fresh blueberries but you could also substitute for frozen in this recipe.

Freezing the Blueberry Lemon and Sour Cream Muffins

While I love muffins fresh from the oven, still warm (and with a little butter) these muffins do freeze well. To freeze, cool them completely then place into a reusable ziplock bag or container. You can freeze for two-three months. When you want to use them, either defrost overnight in the fridge or reheat in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, depending on your microwave.
