Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I really enjoy lemon poppyseed muffins and recently read that eating poppy seeds causes one to have positive results for opiates in a drug test. These muffins with a little sweet top from the raw sugar are very moist from the yogurt and are a pleasant way to start the day.

Adapted from All Recipes.com

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (do not sub in whole wheat flour)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/16 cup poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup non fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • raw sugar (to dust top of muffin)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a muffin tin. Combine the flour, 3/4 cup white sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, yogurt, vegetable oil and lemon zest. Blend well and pour over the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Spoon batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 400  for 12-14 minutes.
