what you need to make yourself these lemon poppy muffins

Lately I’ve been turning to small batch and single serve desserts. What I love about this single serve recipe is that nothing goes to waste!

Muffins are best the first day you bake them so for me it sometimes becomes a struggle to give some away while they are still at their freshest. No worries with this recipe!

So here’ s what you need to make these fluffy gluten free muffins…

  • gluten free all purpose baking flour (I used Outrageous Baking–it’s seriously the best!)
  • baking powder
  • poppy seeds
  • salt
  • egg
  • coconut oil
  • granulated white sugar or coconut sugar
  • almond milk
  • lemon juice
  • lemon zest
  • powdered sugar

That’s it!
