High-Protein Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

These lemon-blueberry muffins are so good, you'll think they came straight from a bakery. A sprinkle of sugar creates a nice crunch on the outside, while strained yogurt ensures the muffins stay moist on the inside. The yogurt also provides a boost of satisfying protein, making these muffins perfect for breakfast or snack time. If using frozen blueberries, there's no need to thaw them beforehand. They will add a purple hue to the batter, but it won't affect the delicious end result.

Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Our 15 Best Lemon-Blueberry Breakfast Recipes (14)

Poppy seeds add crunch to these fluffy pancakes paired with a sweet-tart blueberry sauce. What’s the secret to tender pancakes? Don’t overmix your batter! Mixing builds structure, but overmixing will yield a tough pancake. If your batter is lumpy, let it hang out for 5 minutes before cooking. This will give the flour some time to absorb the liquid, ensuring the pancakes turn out just right.
