Anytime I go to a bakery or a market, my go-to purchase is always Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. There is just something about them. Maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s the beautiful exterior, maybe it’s just because they’re so dang good! However, I would always feel bad when I came home and didn’t have an allergy-friendly muffin to offer to my daughter. And I also felt bad because imagine living your life without tasting the wonderful flavor of a lemon poppy seed muffin? Well, I obviously had to do something about that. And KaPow! That is how these Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins were born!
These muffins are so delicious and I can’t even tell the difference between the vegan and non-vegan ones! They are light, fluffy, and packed with flavor! For the non-dairy butter, I use Earth Balance baking sticks, which come in vegan and soy-free. For the non-dairy milk, I love Califia Farms Oat Milk, which is also vegan and soy-free. But feel free to use any substitutions you find right. The recipe will be just as good if you use soy or coconut milk!
Honestly, just eating one of these Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins brightens my day! They really start your day off right! I have a feeling this might be a regular recipe in my household. If you love lemon poppy seed flavor like me, check out these Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes! And if you like muffins, but are not a fan of lemon poppy seed, try these Pumpkin Orange Cranberry Muffins with Orange Glaze! I really hope you enjoy these muffins as much as I do!
