Lemon Almond Poppyseed Muffins PRINT
These are incredibly easy to make and has just the right balance of lemon and almond flavor. If you don’t like almond (and why not??) you can use vanilla extract instead. I used vanilla lowfat yogurt and whole eggs and the recipe was perfect! This recipe comes from “Megan’s Cooking”.
