Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins
Makes 24

4 TBS of flaxseed meal
12 TBS of water
3/4 C of coconut flour, sifted
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 pinch of sea salt
1/3 C of agave or grade B pure maple syrup
2 TBS of pure vanilla extract
The zest of one small lemon
2 TBS of fresh lemon juice, minimum (we like to make ours extra lemony!)
1/3 C of melted coconut oil
3 tsp of poppy seeds
1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. In a bowl add the flaxseed meal and water. Beat to combine and set aside for 5 minutes, mixing on occasion when the mixture separates. This is an egg substitute that is perfect for those who are vegan or have allergies!
3. In a mixing bowl add the dry ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix to combine.
4. Add the flaxseed mixture, the agave, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the dry mixture. Beat well to combine! Add more lemon juice if desired.
5. Add in the coconut oil and poppy seeds, mixing to combine. Mixture should be light and spongey feeling, easily moulded.
6. Line your mini muffin tin with liners. 7.  Scoop dough out by the TBS and roll into a ball in your hand. Place dough in liners and press down slightly on each to fill the mould better.
8. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
