So I wasn’t going to bake this weekend. The plan was to catch up on human anatomy and clean until I realized I was out of muffins and just had to bake. Completely normal, right? Honestly I can only read so much human anatomy before it puts me to sleep. So the bad news is I still have a lot of reading to do.
But the good news is if you wanted a muffin, then you came to the right place because do I ever have a good one for you…Lemon Orange Poppyseed Muffins and I know you are gonna love them! Okay, I know that about most things. Okay, so I say it about everything but I wouldn’t lie to you especially not when it comes to a muffin.
The truth is I wish you were in my kitchen when I bake these things. It would save me from having to eat all the food if I had a few extra mouths to feed and maybe I’d get more sleep too if I had help cleaning up in the kitchen. I hate cleaning.
Speaking of sleep, I’m sleeping through the night without self inducing. A few weeks ago, I started teaching swim lessons in the afternoons. The kids usually wear me out enough that all I want to do is go to bed when I get home. Sleeping issue solved!
The little ones are so darn cute! Well, except for the one or two who are complete maniacs but they’re really not that bad and it’s so fulfilling to see them progress. Odd enough, I feel like I was meant to be there. I have no idea what that means?
But back to these Lemon Orange Poppyseed Muffins. They’re like the goddess of citrus-y, poppy seedy, Greek yogurt packed muffins! Creamy, filling and bursting with citrus. I love the tart flavors of citrus and having one flavor didn’t seem like enough to me which is why I married lemon and orange to make it more fresh and vibrant!
I swear every time I eat one of these they make me happy like spring. They’re so light and fresh. Oh and when I say light, I mean it every sense possible because they’re also only 123 calories. Odd enough, I feel like I was meant to make them. Maybe you are too!
