Ok you guys I know you may be thinking how many more kinds of muffins is she going to make! I LOVE a good muffin. It's essential to me that I recreate some of my beloved favorites in a healthier version. It's important to me that I stay in alignment to how I want to be feeling weekly and also not break the bank with calories or experience a sugar crash after a higher carb/sugar regular muffin.

These muffins are healthy and moist, bursting with warm blueberries, and then you get an explosion of lemon flavor you'd never guess it's super healthy for you!

I added coconut last minute to this recipe. I think next time I make them I may leave the coconut out to enjoy more of the poppy crunch. If you love coconut like I do I would definitely add it but if you are not a lover of coconut I'd leave it out. Regardless, they will by bursting with lemony flavor! Ok, lets get to the recipe! Here we go!

These muffins smell amazing coming out of the oven, and they taste even better! They’re sweet enough even without the sugar, allowing the banana flavor to shine. The texture is spot on! I do make enough to freeze so that I can pop one in to the microwave in between clients or prior to my workout! Yum!
