They are really easy to make too,  with just  seven ingredients needed. Just mix all the ingredients together, transfer to your muffin tray, bake and your done. I think they make a perfect little snack, brunch or after dinner dessert.

They are also full of a lot of goodness:

Recipe- Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, paleo and gluten free.


  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  •  Juice of 1 medium lemon 
  •  1 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 325 f/160c
  2. In a small bowl combine the coconut flour, baking soda, poppy seeds, and lemon zest.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the lemon juice, coconut oil, honey, almond, eggs. Make sure your maple syrup and eggs are at room temperature. You can place the eggs in a bowl of warm tap water for a few minutes to help warm them up quickly. This will ensure that your muffin batter will be runny, and will easily mix and pour into the muffin cups. (Otherwise the coconut oil may harden and won’t mix evenly into the batter.)
  4. Combine the liquid mixture with the dry ingredients.
  5.  Pour the batter into muffins tins and bake at 325f/160c for 20 – 25 minutes.

Recipe notes

  • coconut flour must be used in this recipe, subs wont work
  • coconut oil must be melted or the batter will be dry

I really hope you enjoyed this Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins recipe.

    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.

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

    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!

    This question has been asked twice but no answer was given. Instead of coconut flour can I use plain gluten free flour??

    • nourishyourglow

      I haven’t tested but I don’t think gluten free flour wouldn’t work in this recipe. If you give it a try let me know if it works out!

    Hello, I’m based in the U.K. and I’ve attempted this recipe and it didn’t work. Would you be able to provide grams measurements instead of cups?

  12. October 1, 2017 / 12:13 pm

    I tried making these but it didn’t work, how is the batter supposed to look? Because mine wasn’t a runny consistancy at all?

    Mine was not a runny consistency in the slightest. It clumped up and acted like over saturated bread. I think the coconut oil is solidifying because it’s so cold out, so I put mine in the microwave to see if that would help. It did, but maybe something to make during the summer months? Either way they tasted delicious

      Thank you for the feedback, I think you’re totally right about the coconut oil! I’ll add it into the recipe notes. Glad you enjoyed them x

    Mine wasn’t either. I put my mixture in the microwave for thirty seconds and it got the runny consistency. I think it’s just the coconut oil being weird during the winter months.
