Light Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil (in melted form)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 lemon zested, juiced 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1/4 cup water 
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream 
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds 
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries 
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a muffin pan with liners or spray with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla until well combined.  Whisk in eggs, water, sour cream and poppy seeds until well combined.  Whisk in flour mixture until just combined.  Fold in blueberries until just combined.

Divide batter into muffin cups.  Sprinkle with extra sugar, if desired.  For regular sized muffins, bake about 16-18 minutes, or until well risen and light golden brown.  For Texas-sized muffins, bake about 25-30 minutes or until well risen and light golden brown.  Cool 5-10 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

  1. I love lemon blueberry muffins. Never thought about adding poppy seeds. I'm going to try these for sure. Thanks.

  2. Yay for using coconut oil, stereotypical or not! I love blueberries too and always stock up and freeze some for the winter months. Let's face it, they never last that long. Ha!

  3. Oh Emily, I have not had breakfast and how I wish I could grab one of these from the screen! They look so scrummy and sound so healthy :)

  4. i like the texture of these muffins, especially with the explosion of blueberries in each one!

  5. If you went the pumpkin blueb route, I would NOT blame you. But as it is, I love the sound of these!

  6. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! Do not defile the blueberries with pumpkin!

    Would you believe I waited until this week to finally get some farm market blueberries? I'm trying to clean out the fridge this week in preparation for my vacation next week and I had some buttermilk I wanted to use up, so I made blueberry pancakes. I had plenty of berries left over so I snacked on them the next day. OMG! They were the best berries ever. This is quite a season, even if it is early!

    I need to get another pint and make these muffins as soon as I return. I hope the season won't be over by then!

    1. Too late!! You need to get on board the pumpkin train lady.

      I want blueberry pancakes! That sounds so good!
