Lemon Berry Muffins

These muffins are perfect for cold-snowy days at home when you feel like doing a little baking. The lemon flavor is also a wonderful foreshadowing of the glorious spring days to come.

My favorite thing to do on cold days (snow or no snow) is to bake. I’m happy to tell you that these Lemon Berry Muffins whip up fast.

Easy Lemon Muffins with Frozen Berries

So, you can be enjoying hot-from-the-oven muffins in less than 30 minutes. And with a simple ingredient list, you won’t even have to run to the grocery store for ingredients.

I used a frozen mixture of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries that I already had in the freezer, but any type of berry will work. If you’re lucky enough to have fresh berries on hand, they’ll work as well.
