Apple Poppy Seed Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by CookinwithGas

How is it that lemon got married to poppyseed in certain baked goods? Poppyseed I can take, but I don't like lemon...However I found this recipe, which gives me my poppyseed with something infinitely more palatable, apple! In addition I replaced some of the white flour with wheat, replaced white sugar with brown sugar and traded egg substitute for whole eggs...Try it, you'll like it!

The overall recipe is amazing but I did do some tweeking to it because of the lack of ingredients:

1) Replaced the Wheat Flour with straight white flour
2) Replaced the Egg Beaters with two eggs

I also made homemade applesauce which completely made this recipe. The flour mix is the right consistency and I cannot wait to try it with a wheat mix.

Oh. I love lemon poppyseed muffins. It's just my husband loves apples more. :)
