These Blueberry Lemon Brownies are a spin off of the Lemonies that I made in the spring. The Lemonies were so delicious that I couldn’t get them out of my head! After Andrew and I were invited to a friend’s cookout, I knew I wanted to make another batch with some blueberries thrown in! They didn’t disappoint! :) Moist, zingy and packed with plump blueberries. If you’re a fan of the lemon and blueberry combo, you will love these babies!

Blueberry Lemon Brownies

Yield: 16 brownies

Ingredients:

For the Blueberry-Lemon Brownies:
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon table salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated zest from 1/2 lemon
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
3/4 cup blueberries

For the Lemon Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon finely grated zest from 1/2 lemon

Directions:

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8” x 8” pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk flour and salt together in medium bowl; set aside.
In stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter, sugar, and lemon zest at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping down sides and bottom of bowl with rubber spatula. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, about 20 seconds. Add lemon juice and mix to combine. Reduce speed to low and flour mixture, mixing until incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
Spoon batter into prepared pan and smooth top.
Bake until skewer inserted into brownies comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack to room temperature.
To make the lemon glaze, in a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Spread over brownies and let harden, about 10 minutes, before serving.
