Each of the bloggers in this roundup of the best lemon poppy seed muffin recipes includes important baking tips.
- My favorite – and very new tip is to take the time to sift your dry ingredients together. I guarantee you will enjoy a lighter, fluffier bake if you do.
- Letting your eggs get to room temperature will eliminate flat muffin tops. The extra few minutes is just so worth it!
- Also, while muffins come together quickly, be careful not to over-mix, or you will have a tough, chewy muffin and we don’t want that! I’m sure you experienced bakers know that, but some of us are brand new and still learning!

These Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from Nourish Your Glow are gluten free and paleo! This recipe uses coconut oil, coconut flour, and honey as a sweetener. Aren’t they beautiful? I really appreciate the tips that are included in the recipe, like “melt the coconut oil” .

What is different about this Lemon Yoghurt Poppy Seed Muffin recipe by Betty Crocker is that it uses a lemon flavored yogurt. Have you tried that before? And there is also a ‘light version’ that allows for swapping out the egg for an egg substitute, skim milk and applesauce for a sweetener. The lighter version is 150 calories, compared to 180 calories for the full, so if you asked me, I’d go for the full on recipe for and enjoy my 30 calories!

This Quick and Easy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe from Recipe Tips will take you from start to finish in 35 minutes, and uses a lemon cake mix, and lemon pudding as part of the ingredients!
