These paleo lemon poppyseed muffins are the BEST! They’re naturally sweetened, lemony, and made with healthy ingredients.
I have been wanting to create a healthy lemon poppyseed muffins for years and finally perfected a recipe. I promise this will be your new go-to recipe if you’re looking for a gluten-free and grain-free lemon poppyseed muffin!
These muffins are perfectly moist, have just the right amount of sweetness, and are SO flavorful thanks to the lemon! You’re going to love these! I recommend having one still warm out of the oven with a slather of plant-based butter (or an amazing grass-fed butter). I also love these muffins with a slather of almond butter on top.
I love that these muffins are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. They’re paleo thanks to a paleo baking flour mix.
Ingredients needed for these lemon poppyseed muffins:
- eggs: I love using pasture-raised eggs and I recommend leaving them out on the counter about 20 minutes before making this recipe so they’re at room temperature.
- maple syrup: my natural sweetener of choice. I find that 1/2 cup added the perfect amount of sweetness to these muffins without making them overly sweet. You can substitute honey for the maple syrup.
- lemon: make sure to juice the entire lemon
- paleo baking flour: I love using this paleo flour mix for my baked goods.
- baking soda: to give these muffins the perfect texture and help them rise.
- pink salt: adds delicious flavor to these muffins. You can use any kind of salt here.
- poppy seeds: obviously need these since they’re lemon ‘poppyseed’ muffins 🙂
- lemon zest: zest the entire lemon for the most delicious lemon flavor.
