I bought poppy seeds and am trying all kinds of recipes with them. These muffins are delicious and different.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 28 minutes

Yield: 12


  • ½ cup + 1 Tbsp. pure cane sugar (I used Splenda)
  • 2 medium lemons
  • 1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup poppy seeds
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. fine-grain sea salt
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled (I used coconut oil)
  • ¾ cup plain yogurt (plain Greek yogurt works, too)
  • 1-2 large eggs (I used one)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp turbinado sugar for sprinkling on top (I did not do this)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease your muffin pan using butter or non-stick cooking spray (silicone baking cups eliminate the need for this step).

  3. Combine the sugar and lemon zest in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Whisk in the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, yogurt, egg, vanilla and the juice of one lemon.
  6. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Use a large spoon to mix the two together. Do not overmix.

  8. Divide batter evenly between the 12 muffins cups.

  10. Bake for 16 to 19 minutes, until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  11. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and salt in a bowl. Add milk, oil, egg, and orange juice; stir just until mixed. Gently fold in blueberries.

Some of the best muffins are lemon poppy seed. A moist citrus taste and some poppy seed crunch make these very popular for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon snack.
