Lemon-Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

I kept seeing this combination on Pinterest and couldn’t resist. I love lemon, love yogurt and had blueberries I needed to use up. This version totally worked for me.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup lemon flavored Greek yogurt 
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or applesauce)
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen could probably substitute)
Lemon Glaze:
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 – 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In another bowl, mix together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and oil. Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Be careful not to overmix the batter! Very gently, mix the blueberries into the batter.
Pour the batter into the greased muffin tins and bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing. Let almost completely cool before topping with the glaze.
To make the lemon glaze, in a bowl whisk together the confectioners sugar and the lemon juice. The mixture might be thick but should be spreadable. Add up to another tablespoon of lemon juice (or water) if it’s too stiff. Pour the lemon glaze over the top of each muffin.
