What you need to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins?

To make this recipe completely healthy and gluten-free, I used Almond Meal as base of the recipe! which means ‘no All Purpose Flour’. I know, Almond meal can be a little expensive compared to plain flour, in such case, we can substitute almond meal with gluten-free All Purpose Flour or Oat Flour. The rest of the ingredients are simple and economical to find.

  • Almond Meal
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Apple Sauce
  • Brown Sugar/Coconut Sugar
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Lemon Zest
  • Lemon Juice
  • Poppy Seeds
  • Vanilla Extract

How to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins?

  • Take a medium sized mixing bowl and add apple sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract and give a quick mix with a spatula.
  • To the same bowl, add almond meal, tapioca flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix everything together.
  • Add poppy seeds at last and mix to combine.
  • Transfer batter to muffin pan equally. Can fill batter to the edge of muffin pan as almond meal will not double in size like plain flour.
  • Bake at 350F for 25-30 mins or till top turns a little brown in color!

Serve warm as it is or with drizzle of maple syrup.
