Breakfast and brunch lovers unite! You can have a healthy, flavorful muffins for days (if they last that long) with this aaaa-mazing Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin recipe.
I’ve had a crush on the lemon poppy seed type for a while now. It all started back when I worked at a coffee shop that served a loaf, with thick icing on top. It was peeeerrrrfffect with a piping hot latte, and even better was that, despite my viewing of the nutrition label as I put it on the shelf, my young self didn’t care about how unhealthy it was.
If only that was still true. Now, now I gotta think about these things. Which is precisely why greek yogurt gives these muffins their moistness without all the oil, calories, or fat. And of course there has to be icing still, because we do need to live a balanced life.
All you need is a little drizzle though (or a lot, judgement free zone right here) to give you a little extra sweetness, and the almond flavor brings a little elegance to the party.
