Blueberry Almond Lemon Muffins

These little mouthfuls are wonderful as breakfast or a snack.  The addition of ground almonds give them a little more interest than a regular blueberry muffin and make them a little more moist.  These were a hit with my family, I hope they will be with yours also!

Blueberry, Almond, Lemon Muffins.

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2  teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
Zest of a lemon
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 sticks butter (melted and cooled)
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups blueberries
sliced almonds – for sprinkling

Line a muffin pan with paper liners.

Melt the butter in the microwave and let cool.

Combine the flour, almonds, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda in a bowl.

Mix together the sour cream, eggs, lemon zest and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.

Toss the blueberries in a tablespoon of flour and gently fold into the ingredients. 

Spoon into the muffin pan and bake for approx 20 – 30 minutes.
