The perfect sweet snack to have after the holidays. These muffins are light, fluffy and incredibly moist. They are subtly sweet and sure to satisfy everyone in the household!
These all started because I had some extra lemons to use up and was craving something sweet yet refreshing that would also comfort the palate. I saw a picture of some lemon poppy seed bread and my mind started racing with ideas. These muffins were so easy to make and if you bake gluten free often you will most likely have all the ingredients you need to make these.
I didn't have poppy seeds but had chia seeds which in my opinion are even better! These little bites of heaven are packed with omegas from the chia seeds, protein from the almonds, healthy fats from the coconut oil, fibre from the coconut flakes and of course vitamin C and potassium from the lemons. So don't shy away from these next time your craving something sweet, refreshing and comforting!
