Lemon Poppy Paleo Muffins

Lemon Poppy Paleo Muffins

I love lemon poppy seed muffins. This recipe took quite a bit of testing, but I finally created a recipe that tastes like the traditional bakery version of lemon poppy muffins that I remember. I used coconut flour to create the moist, fluffy texture. Fresh lemon juice and zest provide the lemon flavor and the poppy seeds add a sweet crunch. Lemon poppy paleo muffins are perfect for breakfast with tea or coffee.

I always have fresh lemons in the house, so it’s easy to whip up these paleo breakfast muffins at a moment’s notice. They come together fast — just add everything to the food processor and the batter is ready in a few minutes. Lemon poppy paleo muffins are a quick and easy way to satisfy your muffin craving.

    I know this is an older post, but I just came across your site recently. I made these this morning and they were lovely. Perfect for a weekend breakfast treat, and definitely one of the best paleo baked goods I’ve tried. Thank you!

    Hello. I’m making these right now without the poppy seeds because I don’t like them, but I added a couple of blueberries to some to see how they will turn out! I’m wondering, would you consider these something healthy that you could eat on a daily basis, or are they more supposed to be considered a treat? Thanks so much.

    Hey Lisa,

    I’m very happy to find your site and this recipe.
    I’ve just started to ear paleo(only 2 days ago),and I’m really beginner in paleo meals however I cook quite well regular things.I miss the cakes and muffins and I have everything at home for this recipe.I would have some questions:
    -the batter isn’t too runny with only 1+ cup of coconut flour?(or is that ok?)
    -could I substitute the honey to eritrit?
    -could I put 100-150 grammes of blueberry into the batter?

    Many thanks for answers in advance,
    Réka from Hungary

      Hey Reka, I’m glad you found it too! There are quite a few paleo muffin recipes you can try. For this recipe, the coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid so you use less than you would for traditional flours. The 1/3 cup of coconut flour is about 45 grams by weight. I haven’t used any other sweeteners in this recipe so I don’t know if your substitution will work. Let me know if you try it. I haven’t tried berries in this recipe, but check out the banana blackberry muffin recipe that also uses coconut flour. Hope this helps!

    Aloha! This is the first recipe I used from this site. I duplicated recipe except that I substituted grass-fed butter for coconut oil. I used a toaster oven with 4-large-flat muffins; this allowed me to make 5 muffins. My muffins were delicious, so I feel confident that I can trust other recipes because they were indeed tested before offering. I also spread with imported Brie cheese. Mahalo!

      Aloha! I’m so glad to hear you liked the muffins. I do spend a lot of time testing the recipes so it’s great to hear your feedback. Thanks!

      The coconut oil should at least be softened so it blends into the batter. My coconut oil is soft at room temperature this time of year so I don’t melt it. If your coconut oil is hard, go ahead and melt it before adding it to the batter.

  1. […] 17. Lemon Poppy Paleo Muffins Lemon poppy muffins are one of the most popular kinds around, so it’s a necessity to learn how to make them Paleo style. The standard recipe for these muffins includes such no-nos as sugar, all-purpose flour, and buttermilk. None of these ingredients show up in this Paleo recipe, and instead you’ll find things like real lemon zest and lemon juice, ghee, honey, and of course poppy seeds. The taste of these will rival if not surpass the kind you’d grown accustomed to before going Paleo, and it may turn out that you prefer the new way of making them over the old. […]
