Ingredients for Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

COCONUT FLOUR: Coconut flour is a great Paleo baking flour. In addition, this flour is Nut Free. Since coconut flour is extremely absorbent, it’s important to let the batter rest for 5 minutes after mixing and before baking. Read more about coconut flour in my Guide to Gluten Free Flours.

COCONUT SUGAR: Coconut sugar or maple sugar can be used in these muffins.

POPPY SEEDS: Rich in manganese and antioxidants, these little seeds add the perfect texture to these Paleo lemon poppy seed muffins.

BAKING SODA: Baking soda is the leavening agent used to help these muffins rise.

LEMON JUICE & ZEST: The juice and zest of one lemon adds a pop of flavor.

DAIRY FREE MILK: Almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk will work well!

EGGS: Four eggs give these muffins the perfect cake like texture and rise.

OLIVE OIL: I suggest using a light flavored oil, such as light olive oil.

COCONUT BUTTER: Melted coconut butter acts as the perfect glaze!
