Gluten-Free Lemon Poppyseed Muffins Recipe

These fragrant muffins have a tart, refreshing taste of lemon, complemented by a delightful light crunch from the poppyseeds. Ginger lovers can easily adapt this recipe to make Lemon Ginger Muffins by substituting 3 tablespoons of peeled, grated fresh ginger for the poppyseeds.

Free of: soy, nut

2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Mix (recipe follows)
1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons poppyseeds
2 large eggs
1 cup Dairy Milk Alternative (recipe follows)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons chopped lemon zest (from 3 to 4 lemons)



1. Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. To prepare the batter: Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and poppyseeds in a large bowl. Mix together with a whisk until blended. Whisk together the eggs, milk, lemon juice, oil, and zest in a small bowl until well blended. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until just combined, taking care not to overmix the batter. The batter should look lumpy.
