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:

Poppy seeds -Supply a dose of the minerals iodine, manganese, zinc, magnesium and copper.

Lemon –  many nourishing elements like vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and phosphorus

Coconut flour –  high in fibre, protein, and healthy fats

    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.

    Could u use chia seeds instead of poppy?

      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!

    Think I’ve done something wrong here as mine look like rock cakes!!! Not sponge looking at all? I mixed everything like you said put into a muffin tin and cooked for 12 mins !!!! They dont really look cooked either
