Low Carb, Low Calorie, Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Recipe


Love the delicious taste of lemon poppy seed muffins? Here's a super-easy recipe to bake the sweetest, yummiest, lemon poppy seed muffins ever. The best part is, these are lower calorie muffins thanks to the addition of Lakanto all-natural sweetener. 

Lakanto's sugar substitute products contain natural Monkfruit which has impressively fewer calories than regular cane sugar. Monkfruit is grown in Asia and is above 200 times sweeter than natural cane sugar. 

Lakanto's range of sweetening products also contain Erythritol, which is the sugar alcohol naturally found in grapes, cheese, wine and beer - all foods and beverages enjoyed across the world for thousands of years. 

These two constituents combined, produce a sugar substitute that is both a natural and healthy alternative to common high calorie sugar derived from traditional sugar cane. There are no nasties!

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Recipe

For the muffins:

4  TBS coconut or almond flour

3 TBS powdered collagen

2tbs cassava flour

Half a cup of Lakanto Baking Blend

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3 whole eggs plus one egg white

Half a tsp lemon zest.
