If you love fresh-baked, hot-out-of-the-oven muffins like I do, I’m betting one of your top favorites has got to be what I call the “classic” poppy seed muffin…
Awhile back I posted a delightful little poppy seed number that included lemon juice and zest to give it some extra zing.
Well this paleo and gluten free muffin is just as delicious – the only real difference is it tastes closer to the quintessential poppy seed muffin everyone knows and loves.
This recipe is the classic version…kinda like the little black dress of Muffinland. Sweet, yummy and perfect for every occasion – and it never goes out of style.
You’ll notice I accessorized these muffins with sliced almonds. When you whip these babies up, don’t skimp on those crunchy little slices. They’re what takes these poppy seed muffins over the top.
I had one with my coffee this morning. It was so good…nice and light, with a subtle, sweet almond flavor. The perfect way to wake up your taste buds and get your day off to a great start :)
If you have kids, I’m sure they would love to find these packed in their school lunches.
If you prefer a smaller, bite-size version, just bake these in a mini-muffin pan. That way you can pop a couple of minis in your own lunch bag.
Just remember these poppy seed muffins are sweets and best reserved for the occasional treat…especially if you’re new to paleo, or just watching your carbs. After all, the holidays are coming up soon girls…and we’re gonna want to rock our classic little black dresses!
Enjoy and Cheers!
