- Combine dry ingredients and orange zest in large bowl. Combine wet ingredients in medium bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, then fold in blueberries.
- Using a large ice cream or cookie scoop, fill muffin cups ¾ full.
- Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
Yield: 8-9 muffins
It’s important to use fresh blueberries. Frozen berries tend to be too wet, and add too much moisture to the batter.
If you don't have or use ghee, butter would be the closest substitute. Coconut oil will also work, but it will change the flavor slightly adding a hint of coconut.
