Flourless Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (Paleo)

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I always eat the the batter.  Yep, raw eggs and all.  I know I know I am gross but how can you tell if the batter needs more or less of something if you don't taste it?  Are you supposed to wait until you waste high quality ingredients and taste them when they come out of the oven?  What do all the "professional" muffin makers do?  Maybe they just know.  Well this batter was SO good that only 11 muffins came out and this recipe makes 12.  I am actually a little disturbed with myself as I type this out.  I may have a serious muffin batter eating problem.  There is always that person who takes muffin posts (and me eating the batter) way too seriously, and to that lady or gentleman...it is now a full 6 hours post my raw batter eating party and I am doin just fine (knock on wood).  This recipe is loosely based off this recipe, although I made several changes that made them just a bit sweeter and super moist.

What you will need:
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbs of coconut flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tbs of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
  • 2 medium sized lemons juiced
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • 2 tbs of poppyseeds (you could also use chia seeds if you can not find poppyseeds)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Melt the coconut oil and honey together and pour into the egg mixture.  Mix everything together.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.  Slowly stir them into the wet ingredients.  
  4. Fill each muffin tin (or lined muffin pan) with about 1/4 cup of batter
  5. Bake for 22 minutes.  







These muffins are by far my favorite Paleo muffins that I have made to date.  They are moist and  lemon-icious.

Loved your intro - afterall, isn't half the fun of baking getting to pre-test the results? Between taste-testing and accidentally oversizing the baked goods I usually budget a recipe making at least 1-2 items less than it states.

Maria @ GLD said...

Mmm!!! These look delish! I love everything that has lemon taste so this might be my new favourite recipe ;)
Thanks for sharing?

Samantha Hill said...

I'm pretty sure EVERYONE secretly eats the batter. Raw eggs and all!

Valarie Vousden said...

Thank you so much for your Paleo recipes! They have helped me stick to it for almost a month now!

Lauren said...

Yesss, I love this! Especially since I don't have to figure out any substitutions for it. :)

Alex@Spoonful of Sugar Free said...

Are these healthy?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Anonymous- they are a treat, but yes all the ingrediets used are clean and healthy.

Heidi said...

I just bought almond meal... is there any way to sub that for coconut flour or are they too different? I'm guessing the almond flour could be way more dense than coconut...

Kelly Ann said...

These look absolutely delicious!

Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorites! It just tastes so fresh. You have shared some really delicious looking paleo treats - I have to admit I'm surprised! I might have to try a few paleo things afterall :)

Danielle said...

looks great. How are you liking the Paleo diet so far? has it helped with the baby weight and are you satisfied with the food options?

Anna Elder said...

Mmmmm! I always eat the batter too. I might like it better than the actual baked good. I think my post-baby diet will be paleo.

I have been using your site since I started Paleo (big life saver) and this muffin recipe couldn't have come at a better time. Major sweet tooth alert, late at night. I used your recipe but only used 4 eggs because I didn't have a 5th. I also used chia seeds because I didn't have poppy, and I must say, DELICIOUS. Your page really has been my life saver. I have about 60 more pounds to lose (15 down) and I contribute some of the success to you! :)

Tracy said...

Can you sub stevia for the xylitol? Also, my grocery store keeps the poppyseeds behind the counter at the customer service. I guess people have found a way to get high off them??? Weird.

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Heidi- You can definitely try substituting with almond meal...but I am not sure they would turn out super moist.

Danielle- I am loving it! Yes, it is helping with the baby weight! I only have 5 more pounds to go and I am contributing that the working out and cutting out certain foods for sure. Yes I am very satisfied with the food options. I do not miss cheese or dairy at all surprisingly.

Tracy- this recipe does not contain xylitol but you are welcome to try out any combinations you like, although I am not sure exactly how they will turn out with other combinations.

Just popped these out of the oven! The texture is great--so light and moist. I messed up the flavor somehow--not enough lemony-ness, or maybe I skimped on the vanilla. Probably could have avoided that if I weren't so phobic of raw batter!

Liz P said...

I just made these tonight and they were good! Love the texture, though I could definitely go for more lemony flavor.

What a great recipe! Thank you so much for sharing! Can't wait for the book to come out!

I just put these in the oven...the batter tastes delicious! I'm sure they are going to turn out great! Thank you!

anyone try these with bluberries?

Amy said...

Do you think there's a substitute for the honey? Or is that a necessary element? Thanks!!

Christine said...

These are so delicious warm out of the oven with butter. I made half the muffins purely lemon poppy seed and the other half plain lemon with blueberries. I used coconut sugar for the sweetener and added a splash of almond extract. I'd say, however, that even without eating any batter, the recipe only makes 8-10 regularly sized muffins. A dozen was a stretch, so I'd recommend one-and-a-half-ing the recipe if you don't want puny muffins.

lisajed said...

These were delicious. Thank you so much. My husband has been Paleo for almost 4 years and he loved them. He had come home from work the day before and seen that my son and I had made mini muffins. They weren't paleo and he was bummed so I was so thrilled when I found these. I love your blog.

I made those according to the instructions before, and they were delicious! Today I didn't have any lemons, so instead I used 2 oranges, even put a little bit of pulp in the batter. So good! Next time will try with oranges again, and will swap poppy seeds for dark chocolate chips. I'm sure it'll be amazing!

Grommie said...

I made these and they are FANTASTIC!!! Yay!

Anonymous said...

These were fantastic! I added a few packets of stevia b/c I was short on honey but they were perfect!

Sherry of Pondered Primed Perfected said...

I just saw these on Pinterest and came over to see the recipe...I can't wait to give these a try! I'm pinning again and following! Thanks for what sounds like a delish alternative to regular muffins.

I just tried these, they are amazing! Mine were soooo moist - almost like they weren't done completely. Is that normal? I cooked for correct time, toothpick came out clean and they looked exactly like yours! Are they just extremely moist?! This is my first time attempting gluten free so just wondering! :) thanks!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Totally normal for them to be moist :)

Kasey McAllister said...

I made these tonight! The chia seeds work great since I couldnt find poppy. I also added a little protein powder:) Thanks for the yummy treat!

Dana said...

I've tried so many gluten-free baking recipes that have been total failures! This was a COMPLETE SUCCESS!!!

Thanks so much for the best lemon muffin recipe ever!! I made a lemon glaze to drizzle on the tops: 2 tbs lemon juice whisked with a 1/2 cup powdered (confectioner) Swerve all-natural sweetener. It adds an extra zing of lemon!

Roanna said...

Great muffins! Big hit with paleo and non-paleo peeps. So moist and lemony.

im making these mmmmmmmmmm

Annsspirit clausen said...

Do these have a coconut flavor to them since so much of that is used or does the lemon blot out the coconut flavor? I don't care for coconut. :)

Alexis @ Hummusapien said...

Just made these and they're absolutely delightful! Love your recipes :)

MELicious said...

Made these for the first time yesterday! Holy-freaking-delicious!!! Lemon has always been one of my faves so these hit the spot! I used 1T chia and 1T poppy. Next time I'm going to skip the seeds and try putting in raspberries. THanks for the recipe! My kids liked them, too! Win-Win! I'll be posting them on my FB page MELicious. :)

Do you know how many calories are in this recipe? per muffin/serving?

Nanna said...

Is coconut flour the same as coconut fiber - and if not, could i subst. the flour with fiber?

Rocky said...

WOW, I've been playing around with paleo baking, and after the fifth muffin recipe, I found the winner! SO moist, and way too addicting. Thank you for this recipe I shared it on my blog!
