Recipe Series!! The most delightful Lemon Poppyseed Muffin Sweetness you'll ever eat.

Hey everyone! 

So, jumping right to my amazing awesomeness that IS these Lemon Poppyseed muffins...I decided a few days ago that i wanted to bake. I truly love baking! It's so fun to come up with your own ideas and throw them together to see what they create. 

I haven't had the greatest of luck in the past when i made my own recipes, just because i didn't know enough about the importance of all of the ingredients. But after a lot Lot LOt LOT of experimenting, I sorta got the hang of it. ;) 

These came out like a charm! & are seriously SO super easy!

You'll need: 

  1. Grease a muffin pan.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (I used King Arthur. You could also use all purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cup organic sugar (It doesn't HAVE to be organic, but that's really all I use)
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tsp baking powder (mine is alluminum free)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used So Delicious Sugar Free, but any kind will work here too, even almond milk!)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lemon flavoring (Optional)
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients together & mix well, making sure all of the poppyseeds are dispersed evenly. In a medium mixing bowl combine all of the wet ingredients. The lemon juice will actually make the coconut milk separate a little bit, but that's totally normal. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Scoop the batter into the muffin pan, about 2/3 of the way (if you want an extra little treat--sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the top of the batter before putting it in the oven) & place in the oven for 20-22 minutes, or until done.  You can use the toothpick test to determine if they are done. :)

Seriously they are SO moist & so delicious. SO super satisfying, and truly exactly what i look for in a lemon muffin. :) I'm working on a recipe to try and get them a LITTLE bit fluffier, but until then: these are the puppies to go to!

Enjoy them! Believe me, I have been!

Till another day,
Kiah :)


  1. Sooo... it's been awhile since I said I was going to try these, but I did something wrong! The muffins didn't rise at all - kind of brick-ish. Not much flavor, either. One thing I definitely changed out of desperation was that I made two flax eggs instead of the apple sauce because I didn't have any and was impatient. I'm not sure how much of a difference that makes, as I really do not bake much. Mine did not look at all like yours.

    I will have to try again with the correct ingredients. (I didn't feel bad about it, however, because I ate some of your 'ice cream' while I was baking!!!)

    1. Hmmm...that's so bizarre! My guess would probably be the flax egg...flax is a bit heavier than the applesauce so maybe it didn't allow it to rise enough! What flour did you use also?? That could effect it. I actually learned in my class last year that different brands of flour even though they are the same TYPE could affect the turnout as well. It's all about trial & error! As far as the flavor goes, you may have to put more lemon in it, but keep in mind that will make it more acidic so you'll need a lil bit more baking powder or maybe even some baking soda.
