30 Minute Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

muffins
  1. 2 c. all-purpose flour
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1/3 c. poppy seeds
  4. 3/4 c. white sugar
  5. 1 tsp. baking soda
  6. 2 tsp. baking powder
  7. 1/2 tsp. salt
  8. 1 tsp. almond extract (or vanilla)
  9. 1 tbs. lemon juice
  10. 3/4 c. plain fat-free greek yogurt
  11. 1/4 c. vegetable oil
glaze
  1. 8 tbs. powdered sugar
  2. 3 tbs. lemon juice
  3. 1-2 tbs. lemon zest (usually from 1 large lemon)
Instructions
  1. Grease a 12 count muffin tin (I like to use non-stick cooking spray to evenly coat the cups), and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Using a medium sized bowl, whisk together the baking soda, flour and salt. In a second large bowl, combine the wet ingredients with a mixer on low-medium speed: sugar, almond extract, eggs, yogurt, lemon juice and vegetable oil.
  3. When the wet ingredients are incorporated, slowly add the dry ingredients in three stages. TIP: Keep your mixer on low to minimize the flour-y mess. Add the poppy seeds last, gently folding them into the muffin batter.
  4. Fill each muffin about 2/3 the way full, and bake for 12-16 minutes until toothpick test comes out clean. Cool the muffins on a wire rack.
  5. To make the lemon glaze, mix the remaining lemon juice, powdered sugar and lemon zest in a small bowl. The consistency should be thin enough to drizzle but thick enough to have an opaque white color.
  6. Plate the muffins, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top and serve immediately.
