I absolutely love lemon flavored pastries. The glazed lemon loaf from Starbucks used to be my go-to with a large iced coffee! These Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Muffins satisfy all of those cravings in a slightly healthier way. They are completely gluten free, dairy free, and grain free! Technically with the glaze, these are not paleo unless you use ground up coconut sugar. However, that’s perfectly ok with me. I like to take the easy way out and use organic powdered sugar.

How To Make These Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Preheat your oven to 350. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin cups or spray with cooking oil.

Combine the eggs, coconut sugar, melted ghee (once cooled), lemon juice, lemon zest, almond milk, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk well.

In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and poppyseeds together.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir together gently.

Divide the mixture between 12 muffin cups for smaller muffins, or 9 muffin cups for larger muffins.

Bake for 20-22 minutes for smaller muffins, and 22-24 minutes for larger muffins. They are done with a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let them cool for 10 minutes while you make the glaze.

To make the glaze, whisk together the lemon juice and organic powdered sugar. Drizzle it over top of the muffins. Enjoy!
