  • 3 eggs room temp
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup melted ghee or oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp poppyseeds

Lemon Glaze

  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • cup organic powdered sugar You can also make this by blending up coconut sugar for a few minutes!


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin cups or spray with cooking oil.
  • Whisk the eggs, coconut sugar, melted ghee, lemon juice, almond milk, lemon zest, and vanilla together in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and poppy seeds.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and fold together gently without over mixing.
  • Divide the mixture between the 12 cups for smaller muffins, or between 9 cups for larger muffins. Bake for 20-22 minutes for smaller muffins, and 22-24 minutes for larger muffins. They are done when 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!
