Lately, Kenya has been going through a big muffin phase (or rather mommy has been going through a big testing spree making muffins and there's not much else for Kenya to eat!). Growing up, my mother used to make us blueberry muffins for breakfast and I always remember them being warm, soft and delicious. A very comforting way to start the day. The only problem with most muffin recipes is that they're loaded with sugar and some can be as heavy as hockey pucks.
These sweet lemon poppy seed muffins are so light and airy, you'll want to sit around and eat them all day (as Kenya likes to demonstrate when I make them!) One more reason to love poppy seeds, aside from their flavor, is their extensive quantities of calcium and high percentage of protein. Who knew those little black seeds were so packed with nutrients?
These little morsels are the perfect treat for breakfast, lunch box snacks or even dessert!
