Very Lemony Blueberry Muffins

When it comes to blueberries I have a fond memories of picking wild ones they were so tasty I fell in love with them.Blueberries  are one of my favorite fruit .  Nice and light and slightly bittersweet yummy fruit. They  are fun to eat by themselves or you can add them to something.I was thinking maybe I’ll add them to scones or oatmeal but I was a little indecisive so a little bright light bulb came on and I thought I’ll make some muffins not just any ole’ muffin but some thing special.I wanted a little zing to my muffins and I decided to add lemon juice,lemon zest and lemon yogurt to my muffins for a extra surprise.I’ll tell you while making them the batter smelled awesome.  These muffins are easy to make and great for breakfast you can have with your morning coffee or evening tea.Please let me know what you think of these awesome muffins!!!
