This post is sponsored by friends at Anolon. As always all opinions are 100% my own.

I’m one of those “you better be giving me protein with my breakfast or you will feel the wrath of a thousand burning suns” kind of person. I have recently started eating breakfast and this is basically what I have learned about myself. However, I’m still one of those “OMG CARBS” people too. So this usually means my meal is half carbs half all. the. protein. I also like to throw in a healthy dose of vegetables because it’s always smart to eat your vegetables.

Don’t worry – I got my fruit in by eating these blueberry lemon thyme muffins. Fruit + carbs = YES!

I also jazzed up these muffins by adding in a little thyme. I know it’s not a typical muffins addition but trust me, you’ll love it! Oh and these muffins are crazy full of lemon flavor. Not only did I put lemon zest in the streusel topping and muffins I also added in lemon extract! Plus I got to use my spiffy new Anolon muffin pan!

In the past I was cursed with an old janky muffin tin that has finally made it’s way to the dump. This new pan is my muffin pan dreams come true. It has little rubberized grips and it come with a pretty little top that makes transferring these muffins a breeze. Although if you’re like me you won’t be sharing these muffins because you’re stingy and they’re too good to share.

Or you could do the whole “sharing is caring” thing. Whateves.

Ok so what have we learned with this post? Muffins are great. Muffins are grand. Muffins are something you should make this weekend. Specifically these muffins.

    I love that you added thyme to this recipe. Do you find it enhances the lemony taste?

    Those look amazing! Would you mind me if I replace the butter with coconut oil? to make it vegan!

    I love the lemon and blueberry flavor combination, and I’ve seen lemon and thyme together once or twice, but never tried it- these muffins are the perfect way to combine all those spring flavors 🙂 I also love the crumb topping! Pinned.

    I adore a good blueberry muffin. And agree… BALANCE WITH THE PROTEIN, so I’m not hungry/crashing approximately 52 minutes later.

    Oh, wow! I don’t even know where to start! So many things to rave about here! These are just gorgeous, and blueberry and lemon are always terrific together, but the addition of thyme is a masterful idea! And mmmmmmm … the crunchy streusel topping looks fantastic!

    These look divine. Muffins win every time with me in the morning. And the streusel is amazing. I would be picking a piece off one by one to savour every bite.
