These healthy, skinny, lemon poppy seed muffins are my new favourite. Moist and light thanks to the coconut flour. Fresh lemon juice and lemon zest give the perfect amount of lemon flavour and the poppy seeds add a bit of crunch.

I used coconut flour as I love the way it tastes in baking and makes cakes super moist! I also love the fact it makes you feel really energised. Plus it’s so good for you and makes this recipe grain free, gluten free and paleo!

    Should you use muffin liners in the pan? And should the pan be mini cupcake/muffin pan?

      I Cherie, I don’t use muffin liners as my pan is non stick. I just used a general sized muffin pan.

    For some reason the top portion of the muffins didn’t do as well as the bottom of the muffins. Did I something wrong?

      Hi Cherie, that’s strange I haven’t heard of that happening. Did you follow the instructions exactly with no subs? X

        Mine have also come out weird on the top, it’s like it hasn’t set, it’s not muffin type at all. I used honey instead of maple syrup 🙁 but they don’t look anything like your yummy ones 🙁

    It doesn’t say about adding the lemon juice in the recipe but you mention it above. Do I need to put lemon juice in? How much? Thanks!

    Could u use chia seeds instead of poppy?

    • nourishyourglow

      I don’t think chia seeds would work in this recipe as they absorb a lot of liquid, feel free to give it a try though and let me know if it works!
