This past weekend I got to celebrate my baby sister’s upcoming wedding by attending/hosting her bachelorette party.  We had a blast!!

A crew of six girls went out to Fredericksburg, Texas where we sipped on vino all day and were escorted around by a very nice driver.  He definitely had some patience with all of the T-Swift music going on.

The following night we came back to Austin and crashed at our place.  The hubby was out of town so I had the chance to go all out and decorate with a Kate Spade theme… Pink, black, white and gold… polka dots, stripes and tons of balloons.  And oh ya… did I forget the bubbly?

Knowing there would already be a few sweet items being brought by the other girls, I decided to make a batch of these healthy lemon blueberry muffins.

Let me tell you a few things about how awesome these healthy lemon blueberry muffins are…

  1. They are refined sugar-free!!  Yup, no processed, refined sugar needed.  Only pure, wildflower, super tasty honey is used to sweeten these healthy lemon blueberry muffins.
  2. Coconut oil!!  And of course, a bit of butter.  The combo of equal coconut oil and butter gives these muffins their fluffy texture, amazing rise and rich flavor.
  3. Lemon + Blueberries?!  All things Spring can be found in these healthy lemon blueberry muffins.  No need to choose between your two favorites anymore!

Notes

*Try not to overmix so the blueberries do not bleed their color into the rest of the muffin batter.
**If using fresh blueberries: Your cook time may be less. Make sure to watch the muffins at around 22 minutes to see if they are done!
