Lemon poppy seed muffins are a perfect healthy snack to bring in a little sunshine when you might be missing the summer!
Lemons are said to have a slew of health benefits. They are high in Vitamin C and are powerful antioxidants. Lemon juice can increase iron absorption, boost the immune system, and even help you maintain a healthy complexion. That’s why lemon poppy seed muffins came to mind. I don't really think about lemon poppy seed-flavored anything, mainly because lemon desserts tend to taste a little too strong and tart. If not tart, they are too buttery, heavy, or dry. So, I wrote lemon poppy seed muffins off as being unimpressive. But this changed when I decided to make a vegan, gluten-free, no sugar added version. When done right, lemon can add a refreshing flavor that is perfect for any time of year, but especially when you might be missing summer. So, try this light recipe and enjoy the new and improved version of lemon poppy seed muffins!
