Blueberry Muffins with a Lemon Twist

On the 4th of July long weekend we were going to travel to Ohio, so I was thinking to pack some snack so that we can munch on while travelling. Also, I had a pint of blueberry lying in the fridge which is obviously not going to be fresh when we will return back. So, this is the best way to make use of the blueberries. Also, while making this I was thinking what else can I add to this and saw a lemon in my fridge and added some grated lemon zest to the muffins. Needles to say we enjoyed this combination of lemon zest and blueberries together.
