Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I've been craving a poppy seed muffin for the longest time. I even ordered poppy seeds from amazon.com weeks ago so I could try out a recipe (in case I couldn't find poppy seeds at a grocery store). I wanted to find a recipe that was healthy. I ended up finding one that was healthy, vegan, and delicious! These muffins are moist and taste incredible.

Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

adapted from a recipe found on www.sparkrecipes.com

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purposes flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 5 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup soy milk (I used light soy milk)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (I used freshly squeezed juice)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degree Fahrenheit and lightly grease a muffin tin
  • Mix the dry ingredients (the first five) together and create a well in the middle.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the "well" and mix until just moistened.

  • Fill tins 3/4 full and bake for 23-27 minutes.

  • Enjoy!!!


This recipe makes about 12 regular size muffins, or 24 mini muffins. These are so delicious!

Hope you enjoy!
