Paleo Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Muffin


September 6, 2018

A cake-like, grain free muffin with just a hint of lemon combined with bursts of blueberry flavor. Enjoy this happy treat for breakfast, snack or social gathering.

Gluten free, grain free, dairy free and paleo friendly.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 9 Muffins


Dry Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Super-Fine Almond Flour, blanched whole almonds

1/8 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Baking Soda

2 tsp Organic Poppy Seeds

Other Ingredients

1/2 cups Organic Fresh Blueberries

2 Pasture-raised Eggs

1/2 cup Almond Milk

1/4 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract

Juice and Zest of 1 Organic Lemon

1/4 cup Organic Maple Syrup


1Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with parchment paper liners. I prefer to use the Unbleached Large Baking Cups by If You Care.

2In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients.

3In a small bowl coat blueberries with 1 Tablespoon of dry ingredients mixture. Set aside.

4Using a blender, beat the remaining ingredients. Stir in the dry ingredients until well blended.

5Fold in blueberries. Pour into prepared muffin tin. Each liner should be filled 3/4 of the way.

6Bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Your muffins are ready when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean!

7Store in the refrigerator.


I whipped up an easy Paleo friendly glaze for the top of my breakfast muffins. Here's the quick recipe:

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Organic Raw Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon Arrowroot Powder mixed with 1 teaspoon water


Bring the coconut oil, honey and vanilla to a simmer over low to medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk in arrowroot mixture. Once glaze has thickened, pour over muffins.
