Lemon blueberry almond muffins & a giveaway!

I love a great muffin in the morning, don’t you? And these couldn’t be more moist, or eaiser to make. These muffins are made using Tastefully Simple’s Meyer Lemon Infused Oil and since they no longer offer the oil for purchasing, I am giving one lucky reader the chance to win a discontinued bottle!


The oil is great not only for these muffins, but for sautéing shrimp, veggies, and cooking fish. I recently used this for cooking salmon and it was divine.


All you have to do to enter this giveaway is comment on this post telling me what you would use the lemon oil for OR what your favorite breakfast muffin is.

Winner will be chosen at random and announced April 20th.

This giveaway is now closed. 


This muffin recipe also uses Tastefully Simple’s ever so versatile Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix, which is my number one selling item! If you are interested in trying the pound cake mix, you can find it here. It is the perfect almondy (but not overpowering) flavor, and it turns out perfect every time.  I have used it for muffins, cakes, cake pops, parfaits, fruit pizzas, and so much more. I always keep this product stocked in my cupboard and like I said, out of all the wonderful products Tastefully Simple has to offer, this is best selling item! Enjoy this easy muffin recipe!

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix together pound cake mix, butter, oil and water.
  2. Fold in blueberries.
  3. Pour into butter greased muffin tins.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


The winner of this giveaway is: Theresa. Please e-mail me to claim your prize!

    Your muffins look like you brought them home from the bakery! My favorite muffins are pumkin muffins, but I love lemon poppyseed also. I would use the oil on baked fish dinners for sure.

    I would love to use this lemon oil for the dressing in my Tomato, bacon and green bean (or asparagus) salad. It would be perfect! Thanks for offering the chance to win.

    I would love to try the lemon oil on some grilled salmon or chicken. Yum! And I LOVE the almond cake, will have to try it in muffin form, that sounds so good. Can I purchase Tastefully Simple products online and have them shipped to me? Or do I need to have a consultant…

  • hannahholzmann

    yum! xoxo
