Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Cardamom Glaze
Wow it has been a minute since I posted a sweet recipe! These blueberry muffins scream summer to me, it is perfect for breakfast and or even a snack. This pregnancy has made be crave all things sweets, so weird because with Ahaan I wanted nothing to do with sweets. These muffins turned out really good y'all. Everyone including my fil and mil approved them 🙌🏽, thats the real approval stamp. They aren't too sweet, if you want it to be sweeter you can add more sugar. I hate overly sweet desserts so this works perfectly for me. The gorgeous lemon glaze really brings this together. I may or maynot be salvating as I'm typing this 😳. No wonder the muffins were gone in 2 days lol
Also I'm not a big baker so don't get afraid to try this, because if I can do it you can too!! I'm sure you all will enjoy these! Please tag and share when you and if you do make them.
Stay happy, stay hungry!

To make it eggless, you can use egg replacer. OR 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal and 6 tbsp of water. (that will make 2 eggs).
You can add lemon extract instead of orange as well.
These muffins freeze well, so you can freeze your left overs (if there are any)
