Vegan lemon & poppy seed muffins

Lemon and poppy seed muffins are a delicious treat with an amazing combination of flavours that are just perfect for the upcoming spring.

We love muffins, because they are very tasty and so easy to make! They are a great snack, dessert or even breakfast and there are so many ways you can make them. From fruit to chocolate flavours and even savoury ones, the possibilities and combinations of flavours you can make are endless. This time we made delicious lemon muffins with poppy seeds, because we are simply obsessed with this incredible combination of flavours. As spring and warmer weather approaches, these lemon and poppy seed flavored muffins will pleasantly refresh you. They will impress you with their incredible taste and texture, as they are very soft, light, juicy and fluffy, you just can’t resist them!

They are great when you get an unannounced visit or if you don’t feel like spending hours and hours in the kitchen, as they are made in a good half hour including the baking time and you only need one bowl to prepare these muffins! They are vegan, made without dairy and eggs and low in sugar and oil. You can also decorate muffins, add vegan whipped cream, sprinkle them with powdered sugar … But they are so amazing on their own, that there is no need for any of that!

Ingredients and preparation

You only need 8 simple ingredients, that you most likely already have at home, to make these delicious and refreshing muffins.

These are:

  • all purpose flour,
  • coconut sugar – you can also replace it with brown or white sugars and erythritol,
  • poppy seed,
  • baking powder,
  • lemon peel,
  • lemon juice – we used freshly squeezed lemon juice,
