Lemon Blueberry Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp Lemon Zest
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2  6 oz containers of Plain Greek Yogurt
2  6 oz containers of fresh blueberries
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F*. Grease a standard 12-cup muffin tin (or line with paper liners) and set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk the egg in a separate medium bowl about 20 seconds. Add the sugar and whisk until thick, about 30 seconds. Add the lemon zest and juice and whisk.  Add the melted butter and whisk. Add the yogurt and whisk to combine.
Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture in 3 batches mixing to combine each batch.  Add in the blueberries and fold with a rubber spatula until the berries are evenly distributed. The batter will be very thick (don’t worry). Do not over mix.

Using a large spoon or a ice cream scoop divide the batter into the muffin cups. Lightly sprinkle the muffins with the brown sugar (or you could use sugar in the raw).  Bake until the muffins are light golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.  Immediately remove muffins to a wire rack and cool for at least 5 minutes.
