plain non-fat yogurt
large lemons, zested and juiced
Awesome lemon flavor!! I only had one lg lemon which I juiced and got 1/3c lemon juice. I grated the rind into the wet ingredients-maybe a tsp or so. I added bottled lemon juice to make 1/2 c total (I had read that the avg lemon has about 1/4c juice) I think fresh lemon made all the difference. Next time I will use 2 fresh lemons. I ended up with a ton of batter so I made 18 muffins, which turned out somewhat small so next time I'll make 12. The taste of these is amazing- moist and lemony!! I'll never use a mix again!!
I found these muffins not lemony enough, I used 3 medium lemons. Also there were too many poppy seeds and the muffins were a little dry. I also found the recipe made 18 medium sized muffins.
The muffins turned out quite nice. I cut out some of the sugar (I always do because most things are too sweet for my taste) but in this case I should have just used the amount of sugar it called for. They would have turned out great! I think I will use a bit more lemon juice next time.
Excellent recipe, I double this recipe and only had 2 1/2 lemons. Had a nice lemon flavour but would use the recommended amount next time. Also thought I had lots of poppy seeds but couldn't find them so I used 1/2 poppy seeds and 1/2 chia seeds. Also used whole wheat flour and 1 c of oatmeal to replace the white flour. They turned out great soft and moist on the inside and a nice crispy layer on the outside. I made mini muffins so the kids could bring them to school for snacks. They were a great hit.
Delicious! We have made this recipe three times now. We used fat free greek yogurt and an addition of 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract is tasty. Thanks so much.
I made a double batch of these, and they are delicious! I only had 2 1/2 lemons on hand so I only ended up with 1/2 cup of lemon juice, and I used 2 TB of lemon zest. I will definitely use this recipe again, but I will probably do at least 3/4 c. of lemon juice for a double batch next time. I also had vanilla greek yogurt on hand and they were still fluffy and delicious. I baked my muffins for 2 minutes less than the suggested time to prevent them turning too brown or dry. Thanks for an excellent recipe!
Wonderful, yet they weren't exactly what I expected. The consistency was light and they aren't too sweet. The lemon flavor was not over whelming but pleasant. I had enough batter to make 12 plus 4 mini muffins. The regular sized muffins were full of batter when I put them in the oven and rose to just the right level. I will make these again.
Delicious! My husband loves lemon poppyseed muffins, so it decided to make him happy and bake some for breakfast this morning. I used nonfat Greek yogurt because it's what I had. I thought the thick consistency of the batter would make for dense muffins, but they were very light, moist and delicious. I only had several small lemons, which I used, but next time I'm sure the two large lemons will yield the right amount of lemony-ness. Thanks for sharing!
