  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Beat yogurt, eggs, oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice together in a separate bowl; pour into the flour mixture and stir until you have a light and almost fluffy batter. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 15 to 20 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack to cool slightly.

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.

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 ...
