Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Over the weekend I made one of Hannah’s favorite muffins – lemon poppy seed.  She loves poppy seeds!  Have you guys tried Chobani lemon yogurt??  OMG, it’s amazing!  My store had Chobani on sale 5/$5 (although I can always find Chobani for $1 each at Walmart not on sale.

I used two container of the lemon Chobani in these muffins and they were so moist!  Shhh.  I didn’t tell Hannah that I used Splenda – she usually gives me the stink eye if I tell her I made healthy muffins.

I talked about this baking pan on my Instastory over the weekend – its Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch muffin pan – they have several kinds to choose from, but I’ve had that muffin tin for probably 6+ years and the muffins always come out perfect.

I did a quick glaze with powdered sugar, a pinch of salt and lemon juice.

I’m pretty sure I’m the best Mom ever for making her daughters favorite muffins 😀  Actually I sent most of them home with Jacob’s grandpa on Sunday night, but I told Hannah I’d make her more soon.

  1. 3 cups flour
  2. 3/4 cup Splenda, no calorie
  3. 1/4 cup sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  5. 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  6. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 2 containers lemon Chobani
  10. 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  11. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  12. 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  13. 2 large eggs
  1. Heat oven to 425.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the remaining ingredients in another bowl and whisk just until combined.
  3. Using an icecream scoop, divide dough mixture in the muffin tins. Bake 11-15 minutes depending on how hot your oven gets. Baking the muffins at 425 gets that wonderful top to the muffin - just don't open the oven door if you can help it while they are baking. No peeking!
  1. I used 1 cup of powdered sugar with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil - I think the coconut oil helps the glaze to harden. I left it off the ingredient list, because these muffins are just as great without it, but I only use about a teaspoon of glaze per muffin, so go ahead - so good!

I ran this through the Weight Watcher recipe builder, and each muffin comes in at 5 points, add an extra point if you use the glaze.  

What’s your favorite kind of muffin?   Lemon Poppy Seed is high on the list, but I love a banana muffin with a pecan struesel topping.  Now I want a banana muffin!

Make it a great day!

    Those muffins look great! I’m a Fage plain yogurt gal – but I LOVE the Chobani lemon! I usually use it for dessert. Hoping the new WW freestyle will help me get inspired – Maybe maintain through the holidays. Right now I’m 5 pounds more than I was at the start of the year:( Obviously the old plan didn’t work 😉 Have a great day!

      Well Lynne, if it makes you feel any better, I am up the 20 pounds that I lost the first two months of the year!

      I am looking for a fresh start too – looking forward to it. Now if I could just set down the wine glass and the cheese! 😛
