Bright Lemon Berry Muffins are a perfect recipe for cheering up a cold January day.

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

My favorite thing to do on cold days (snow or no snow) is to bake. These lemon blueberry muffins whip up fast.

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, but any type of berry will do and you could even use fresh.
