Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (Grain-Free!!)

A muffin that won’t give you a muffin-top. Sign me up! I love muffins. Egg muffins, savory muffins, sweet muffins. They are so easy to just grab’n go. And they are the perfect size! I find that when I bake loafs, I cut myself a huuuuuge (Donald Trump voice) slice, whereas a muffin is already a perfect serving size!FullSizeRender-1 IMG_9856

Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite muffin flavors. It’s really light, airy, and refreshing, but also is a comfort food. I always try to bake grain-free, which is great if you have allergies or are simply trying to avoid grains! These muffins are also dairy-free, refined-sugar free, and oil-free 🙂 Doesn’t get much better than that. AND they held together beautifully. Ugh, baking win.
