Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

These are easy to make mixing all in one bowl and pouring into muffin liners. Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins make the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert for this weekend. I know everyone – (including me) is busy and has precious little time and these can easily be whipped up in 10 minutes leaving the house smelling of lovely fresh lemon. These are made in a small batch of 6 but the recipe is easily doubled to make 12.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins One of our big grocery stores in town is re arranging the whole store and I have been struggling to find anything for the last 2 months. I did have the whole store memorized and could whip in and out in 5 minutes, not anymore! They have made the rows twice as long, so when I go down the wrong row, but realize half way down the row its wrong, I have to walk all the way to the other end to get out. It's like a memory challenge and a mini marathon every time I'm there – Bonus! So if you happen to need poppy seeds like I did, I ended up finding them in with the spices in the grocery store.

Happy Low Carbing!
