Jenneka is serving up her famous Lemon Poppyseed muffins....just the right amount of sweet and did we mention these babies are vegan & gluten free!?
To start, you will need to separate wet and dry ingredients.
1 c almond flower
1 3/4 c 1to1 gluten free flower
1 tsp baking soda
1/2tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 TBS poppyseed
1/2 c warm water
1/2 c Trader Joe’s organic coconut milk in the can (heat in microwave or stove top until melted)
Zest of two lemons and 1 lime *do this before you squeeze the juice out 😁*
Juice of two lemons and 1 lime
3tbs melted coconut oil about 45-50 sec in the microwave
1/4c pure maple syrup
1/4c light brown sugar
Zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime
1/2tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lime juice
1/8tsp lemon extract
1 Tbs coconut shavings (optional)
Other tools needed:
zester or fine cheese grater
muffin pan for 12 muffins
paper muffin cups
Difficulty Meter: Easy
Prep Time: 15-20 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Cool Time: 2 hours (unless you cheat and put in refrigerator or freezer).
Makes 12 Muffins
* If you prefer muffins sweeter add a 1/2 c of each of sugar and maple syrup instead of 1/4 c each.
*Coconut milk may have natural cream that solidifies. Not to worry...it did not go bad it is only natural!
*Wash skin of lemons and limes very well because they will be zested - even if they are organic!
*You may have to sift or strain lemon juice to make sure no seeds snuck in!
To Start: In separate bowls mix all wet ingredients and all dry ingredients. Once each bowl is fully incorporated, add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
Ahhh it’s a beautiful marriage!
Once everything is mixed thoroughly, set oven to 350. While you are waiting for the oven to heat, put cupcake cups into baking tray. Fill with batter.
Bake for about 25mins, until lightly golden on top. This is a great time to make your glaze if you haven’t already 😁
Stick a toothpick in..if none of the guts are on the pick...
Perfection! Take muffins out and let cool for about 2hrs.
Top with glaze and an optional edible rice paper poppy!
Serve on your favorite platter!
