Blueberry Muffins with Coriander and Valencia Orange Peel

These muffins are great for breakfast either at home or on the go and can be made and frozen ahead of time.  They last in the freezer for 2weeks-4weeks, not that they every last that long in this house.  They are nutritious and yummy too.  They came in handy when my soon to be 7th grader has to be out the door for school by 6:15.  Just pop them out of the freezer the night before and they are ready to go by morning.  I pair them with organic greek yogurt for a breakfast full of whole grains and protein, just what every growing body, and even those done growing, need.  I hope you enjoy.

Feel free to mix it up as well… I’ve used the same basic recipe (omitting the coriander and orange peel) and substituting other fruits and nuts for blueberries…  Its very versatile and easily adaptable to any fruit.  Try banana with roasted pecans or raspberry and lemon.
