Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

These muffins are soooooo good.  
Just imagine biting into a warm, moist, lemony muffin with an ooey gooey glaze on top.  Pure goodness!  

They have slightly less fat than most muffins, because they use non-fat yogurt and less oil.  Make it Love it!

  1. Love lemon poppy seed muffins-especially in the spring!

  2. What a cool blog name Jenn! I sometimes forgo dinner for a big hunk of cake as a splurge. I figure if I eat mainly healthy I'm ok.

    I'd love a lemon poppy seed muffin for breakfast but it looks like McDonalds instead for a quick bite on the road. Maybe when I get home.
