Blueberry + Lemon Polenta Muffins

Difficulty: Easy

Makes 12

I know how bloody hard it can be to avoid pre-packaged snacks while wanting to stay stocked up on delicious treats throughout the work week. That’s why my Blueberry + Lemon Polenta Muffins are the perfect work or school companion with their slightly sweet, lemony berry goodness! Not only are they damned tasty but you can have them ready to go in less than an hour with very minimal clean up.

Note: these are intentionally not as sweet as your usual muffin but feel free to add more agave if that’s what your little heart desires.


  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 cups polenta
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • Rind and juice of one lemon
  • 2/3 cup agave syrup
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
