Honey Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I was recently introduced to the most amazing raw honey from Mohawk Valley Trading Company. This honey is so delicious we were literally licking it off the spoon. If you’ve only eaten that processed honey from the plastic bear, you’re seriously missing out.

The indulgence of this honey inspired me to create an incredible recipe that highlights the raw orange blossom flavor. Muffins are a breakfast delight and I simply love the fresh, bright taste of lemon zest. Lemon Zest combined with Raw Orange Blossom Honey makes these Honey Lemon Poppyseed Muffins quite a treat. I know you’ll love them!

You can use alternative honey for this recipe, but I can’t guarantee the muffins will be as delicious as the ones I made. They were a huge hit! I sent them in to honor the awesome Teachers’ during Teacher’s Appreciation Week. Delish!

  2. Looks Yummy! Can I know from where I get the same honey? Moreover is that possible to make this muffin without honey?

    • Hi Anna Jane. There’s a link to order the honey. It’s amazing! And you could certainly substitute Agave nectar and make this recipe vegan. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Your muffins look great and I’m sure the taste is awesome. I’d like to try to use rice flour, to make them gluten free. What is your opinion, Nicole?

    Post a Reply
    • I bet that would be delicious! I’m not too familiar with using gluten-free flours, but I would LOVE to learn. Let me know if you change the proportions or anything when swapping flour. I would love to have a lesson on gluten-free baking.
