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.
