These lemon poppyseed muffins are what dreams are made of. Do you have foods that bring back memories of your childhood? Call me a foodie, but I have many. One of those being muffins, lemon poppyseed muffins to be exact. We used to buy the giant pack at Costco and devour them. Growing up in a family of 4 kids, we were a lil' protective of our food. We divided our treats up evenly and hid then from one another haha, oh the joys of siblings. Now I hide things from my husband.....just kidding. Actually I'm not, but moving on 🙂
This recipe is adapted from Creme de la crumb. She was also the inspiration for my photography (thank you Pinterest). Tiffany's recipe popped up with the beautiful blue background and since I painted one side of my wood board a similar color a few months back, I loved the idea of trying this out. So thanks Tiffany, your photography continues to inspire my creations!
These muffins are a great addition to your breakfast or snacks throughout the day. You can easily swap out the flours in this recipe for ones you've got in your house. I realize that not all of you will have tapioca or coconut flour, so not to worry. I've got swaps below. These are gluten and dairy free by nature. Lately some of you have asked why a lot of my recipes don't have gluten or dairy in them. This past year was a tough year for me digestion wise. I suffered pretty badly from leaky gut, and in an effort to heal that, gluten was one of the things that seemed to make things a lot worse for me. As for the dairy, I've always been lactose intolerant, so enough said right there. I'm a big believer in doing what feels best for you. Gluten free is not a fad, but I will say that I do believe strongly that the types of grains that are processed in the States can be tough on our digestion. It's important to listen to your body and see what works. Do I still eat things that have gluten and dairy on occasion? Of course. A girl loves her pizza and ice cream, however they don't make me feel great, so I prefer to stick to things that don't leave me doubled over until the next morning.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Please let me know if there are other recipes you'd like me to make for you, I'm always excited about new ideas.
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend, I'll see you back here next week for another new recipe 🙂
