My favorite – and very new tip is to take the time to sift your dry ingredients together. I guarantee you will enjoy a lighter, fluffier bake if you do.
Letting your eggs get to room temperature will eliminate flat muffin tops. The extra few minutes is just so worth it!
Also, while muffins come together quickly, be careful not to over-mix, or you will have a tough, chewy muffin and we don’t want that! I’m sure you experienced bakers know that, but some of us are brand new and still learning!
So I’ve compiled The Top 10 Best Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipes just for you, no matter what your particular diet preference is! These recipes come from top bloggers, so be sure to check out their blogs!
This Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe from Pie Lady Bakes is light on calories – but full of amazing goodness, like yogurt, fresh lemon juice and zest, and eggs. And a cake mix. Yep! A white Duncan Hines Cake Mix. To save you a ton of time and give you outstanding muffins! And weighing in at only 224 calories and 6 g fat they are BIG on flavour! And we think it’s even better than the ones you can buy from that famous coffee shop. You know?
A Kitchen Addiction has some wonderful recipes, and this muffin recipe comes from American’s Test Kitchen Cookbook. What I love about this lemon poppy seed muffin recipe is the choice you have to use either Whole Milk, or plain yogurt. The recipe also makes 12 really fat muffins, because after all your hard work, you want something substantial to bite into right?
These Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are from La Creme de la Crumb! I’m really loving the glaze that’s drizzled back and forth on the tops! Did you know that baking powder has an expiry date? Be sure to check before you bake!
These Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from Nourish Your Glow are gluten free and paleo! This recipe uses coconut oil, coconut flour, and honey as a sweetener. Aren’t they beautiful? I really appreciate the tips that are included in the recipe, like “melt the coconut oil” .
What is different about this Lemon Yoghurt Poppy Seed Muffin recipe by Betty Crocker is that it uses a lemon flavored yogurt. Have you tried that before? And there is also a ‘light version’ that allows for swapping out the egg for an egg substitute, skim milk and applesauce for a sweetener. The lighter version is 150 calories, compared to 180 calories for the full, so if you asked me, I’d go for the full on recipe for and enjoy my 30 calories!
This Quick and Easy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe from Recipe Tips will take you from start to finish in 35 minutes, and uses a lemon cake mix, and lemon pudding as part of the ingredients! And while most of the other recipes provide 12 muffins, this recipe will make 22 muffins, but I think they are much smaller. This recipe sounds similar to my Starbucks (Copycat) Lemon Loaf.
An easy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin recipe from Taste of Home that will give you delicious Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins in 30 minutes. What I love about Taste of Home is that most of their recipes come from great cooks, just like you and me! J This recipe uses baking mix, and instant lemon pudding and gets really good reviews.
With these Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from Genius Kitchen I love that you can use buttermilk or yoghurt in these muffins, and the ingredients includes butter instead of oil as the fat. You need to separate the eggs too, beating the yolks, and then beating the egg whites.
This recipe from Amy’s Healthy Baking will make you a lemon poppy seed recipe fan 4-ever! Healthy yes, but the flavors that are packed into these little muffins are insane! White whole wheat flour, egg whites, and vanilla crème stevia. Enjoy!
A simple Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin recipe from Kitchen Meets Girl, that uses unsalted butter, low fat yogurt, and light brown sugar to sweeten! I like the idea of starting the bake out at a higher temperature and then turning it back after a few minutes – that’s the way we bake our pies right?
So that’s a wrap.

One of my favorite recipes, this easy apple dessert is a classic. Who doesn’t love a big bowl full of apple crisp, still warm from the oven! I often make it in these little ramekin style dishes, but you can still make this recipe in a 9 x 9 square pan. Because we want lots of leftovers, right?
Do you have a cast iron skillet? Then this will be your Go To recipe. A Pandowdy is similar to an Apple Cobbler and is the way they used to make apple pies, way back when, before we started making pie crust. The light biscuit dough gets dropped on top of the apples by spoonfuls, and of course everything bakes together and gets all happy and cozy.
You’ve heard about Pineapple Upside down Cake? Well now there is an apple version, and let me tell you, those deliciously baked apples are just bursting with brown sugar, cinnamon and look at that caramel sauce! Oh yeah.
Yep that’s what we’re all about here at Pie Lady Bakes.

My love affair with perfect pie recipes has been a life long pursuit. My parents loved to camp so we on our travels we made many a pit stop at the local diner. And you know what you always find at Diners? That’s right. The most beautiful pies on earth. Seriously. I would absolutely salivate when I looked in the dessert showcase at all of those pies. As a kid, Blueberry Pie was my number one go to pie. No ice cream or whipped cream for me though. Just pie.
Diners are still my absolutely fav place to find the absolute perfect pie recipes!
Now I started to put this collection together for National Pie Day – which is on January 23 every year. Kind of like a Christmas Day for Pies! But life happens, and although I put up an amazing post on Buzzfeed – which you can still enjoy here, my post for Pie Lady Bakes has been a little delayed. Until now! I love doing roundups with my food blogger friends, they are so creative and their recipes are awesome! Check out FBC Recipe Sharing on Facebook, if you haven’t already.
What can I say? The healthiest and most awesomely perfect cream pie ever.
I hope you enjoyed my journey through these incredibly beautiful perfect pie recipes. I’ve had fun putting them together. And while you’re here, please take the time to check out all of my other pie recipes!
