    Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F and line a muffin pan with parchment paper liners. I always use parchment paper liners, they keep muffins from sticking to the paper

  • In a large bowl whisk together milk, maple syrup, oil, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest. Add to dry ingredients and mix to combine. Gently stir in carrots and blueberries
  • Pour batter into prepared muffin pan and bake for 35 minutes until golden and firm to touch
