Who doesn’t love a good lemon poppyseed muffin? Now you can have Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Muffins that love you back. This easy muffin recipe is perfect for a brunch, after school snack, or a wonderfully summery dessert.
Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are made with coconut flour. They’re nut-free and flavored with healthy lemon zest which is rich in antioxidants and bioflavonoids.

very helpful, however, I am dealing with an older adult man, picky regarding food, however, his diabetic numbers are usually running high, and for 3 meals a day, seems to be getting pretty difficult to fix and or find anything he can can eat and still keep his numbers low or at least lower. I am planning on trying some of your receipes.
Sorry to hear that! I hope you’ll keep me posted on your and his progress :-)
Yummmm!! Thanks for this website Elana-Love it. I played with this for future reference for myself. I made a few full-sized muffins also, they cooked in 13 minutes and were great. Also made a (big) cookie with the batter. Regular-sized cookie would cook in 12 minutes I think. Holds together well; kindof like a sweet scone….
Hollyann, that sounds amazing!
