  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin tray with muffins liners.
  2. Combine the wet ingredients (eggs, maple syrup, water and lemon juice) into a mixing bowl.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients (paleo baking flour, baking soda, salt and poppy seeds).
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add in the lemon zest and mix again, but don’t over-mix.
  5. Evenly distribute the batter between the muffin liners until they’re 2/3 filled.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 22 minutes – until the tops of the muffins are golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool for at least 20 minutes, then enjoy!


Keep muffins stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freeze to enjoy at a later time.
