Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Whisper

You'll love the very lemony taste of these moist muffins. They work just as well without the poppy seeds, but I like the crunch that they add. From the cookbook Lean and Luscious and Meatless.

These muffins were good, but not exactly the taste I was looking for. I did use 1 T. oil and 1 T. applesauce to reduce fat and calories. I also didn't have lemon extract and used some lemon juice. I did like the crunchiness of the outside of the muffin, that was nice. I'm just looking for a more lemony flavor.
