Almond Flour, Cupcake Liners, Almond Extract, Poppy Seeds

Muffins are a special breakfast treat. I really should make them more because they are great to grab on-the-go. Almond poppy seed muffins have always been one of my favorites. The almond extract gives baked goods such a delicious flavor and aroma. It adds a rich sweetness to your sweets with some warm, nutty notes. These scrumptious almond poppy seed muffins go great with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Perfect for a snack or dessert too.

Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Sweetener in a Bowl

Whisk Together the Dry Ingredients

These almond poppy seed muffins are easy to whip up. First, add your dry ingredients to a mixing bowl. Measure out almond flour, coconut flour, salt, sweetener, and baking powder. Then, whisk it all together. Unlike most store-bought muffins, these ones are very low in carbs because you switch out the traditional all-purpose flour for almond flour and coconut flour. Using mostly almond flour with a little bit of coconut flour gives the muffins a great texture and keeps them moist. Also switch out the sugar for your favorite alternative. I like using a stevia blend like Truvia or Splenda Naturals. More and more options are becoming available in the grocery stores, so use what works best for you.

Egg and Oil with Dry Ingredients

Add the Wet Ingredients

The next step is to add canola oil, one egg, vanilla extract, almond extract and unsweetened almond milk to the bowl. You can use unflavored almond milk or vanilla almond milk, both taste good. Just make sure it’s unsweetened. At this point, whisk everything together in the same bowl.

Almond Poppy Seed Muffin Batter

Don’t Forget the Poppy Seeds

The final ingredient are the poppy seeds. Mix them into the muffin batter until just combined. The poppy seeds add a fun little crunch to the muffins along with some extra nutty flavor. They also contain vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats.

Almond Poppy Seed Muffins

Divide the Batter

Line your muffin tin with paper liners. Alternatively, you can use non-stick spray in a silicone pan. Finally, divide the muffin batter evenly between 12 muffin wells. These don’t rise as much as muffins made with wheat flour, so smooth out the top of the batter. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes until the tops are golden. Store in an air-tight container.
