  2. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a large mixing bowl, and whisk until completely combined. Set aside.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, add the eggs, Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla, and almondmilk, and whisk until completely combined.

  4. Gradually add in the melted butter to the wet mixture, whisking continuously so that its warmth doesn’t accidentally cook the eggs. Whisk until completely combined.

  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients, using a rubber spatula to gently fold everything together until just combined. Don’t overmix.

  6. Gently fold in the blueberries until just combined.

  7. Scoop the batter into the prepared baking cups, filling them ¾ full and topping with a few extra fresh blueberries if desired.

  8. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Remove and let cool on a wire rack. Serve immediately, drizzled with the honey lemon glaze. Or store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Honey Lemon Glaze:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. To thicken the glaze, add more powdered sugar. To thin the glaze, add more almond milk.
