spring time in a muffin
If you’re hosting Easter or just want a super light and summery muffin I have got you covered - Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are here!! I love making muffins or some sort of breakfast bread on Sunday so I have it throughout the week to throw in my yogurt or overnight chia seed bowls before I head to work. It just makes for an easy and filling breakfast.
Poppy seeds actually have a little of benefits, who knew!? They’re so tiny but have high levels of dietary fiber, B vitamins, calcium, iron and zinc, optimize digestion and improve skin and hair health.
These are gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with maple syrup. You can easily swap the maple syrup for honey if you prefer that as your sweetener. I also use collagen in these guys but it’s totally optional. I like to throw collagen in my baked goods because it’s just such an easy boost of protein. They’re also super moist from the Greek yogurt and very easy to whip up. Perfect combo!
