Hey there peeps! Ready for a light and citrusy summer paleo muffin with a little poppy seed kick?
The inspiration for these paleo and gluten-free muffins came to me when I was shopping at a local housewares store and ran across some really cute muffin cups on sale. I couldn’t resist – they just screamed lemon when I looked at them.
Don’t ask me why I get excited about silly paper muffin cups, but let’s just say when spend an insane amount of time baking like I do, it’s the little things that make you happy.
This muffin is a great addition to your morning breakfast, or for a healthy on-the-go anytime snack. And it’s a super-simple to make like most of my Paleo Newbie recipes.
My son Kevin is home for a visit, so he tried one and loved it. After his last bite he asked, “Are you sure these are paleo?” Yes, I’m sure. Then he stuffed his face with another one…
I have been so busy in the kitchen cooking fall recipes for a upcoming cookbook, taking a break to bake these lemon poppy seed muffins brought me back to the moment. Summer, sunshine and hanging out with the people we love most.
If it’s okay with all you, I’ll be hanging on to the long, lazy days of summer as long as possible.
Right now I’m just enjoying watching my son munch his way through our loaded paleo fridge. Unlike the seasons, some things never change. :)
Hope you give this paleo lemon poppy seed muffin a try, and as always, let me know what you think!
