juicy lemon muffins with poppy seeds and chia

You can't have enough lemon recipes! The bright yellow fruits cut a great figure in many dishes. A little bit fruity and a little bit sour. We are very, very refreshing. This is exactly how they come from, our low carb lemon muffins. You won't even notice that they are gluten and sugar free!

The secret stars next to the lemons in this ketogenic muffin recipe are poppy seeds and chia seeds.

Poppy is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. There are countless varieties worldwide and it is impossible to say exactly where poppy seeds come from. With us in Germany you can often find the bright red flowers on the roadside. Up to 30,000 grains can be found in the spherical capsule fruits of a poppy. That sounds like a lot – don't you think?

Poppy seeds are counted among the oil seeds because of their oil content. We therefore recommend that you always buy whole poppy seeds – i.e. not crushed – and keep them dark and cool. Otherwise the little treasures will quickly become rancid.

Chia seeds also come from very old crops. Historically, chia plants come from Mexico. Spanish conquerors brought them to Europe in the 16th century. Because chia plants are very robust, you can find them worldwide these days. But chia plants need a lot of sunlight, so they don't grow so well here in Germany.

When you soak chia seeds in liquid, they form a very clingy and wobbly gelatin layer. We take advantage of this with chia pudding or porridge. In our low carb lemon muffins without sugar, however, they ensure that you keep the muffins wonderfully juicy. Be sure to try it out!

We hope you enjoy baking!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.

  2. Beat the butter and the xylitol until the xylitol has dissolved and the mass is no longer crunching.

  3. Add the eggs one by one and gradually stir in thoroughly.

  4. Mix almond flour, baking powder, chia seeds and poppy seeds together and gradually stir into the butter and egg mixture.

  5. Stir lemon juice and lemon zest into the batter.

  6. Use a tablespoon to fill the dough in silicone muffin tins. Tap the molds a little on the worktop so that any air bubbles disappear.

  7. Bake the ramekins in the preheated oven on the middle shelf for about 20 – 25 minutes until they are golden brown. Then check with a chopstick whether they are already done.

  8. If they are not yet cooked, it is best to cover them with aluminum foil and let them bake for a few minutes.

  9. Take the finished muffins out of the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

  12. Ornament trick:
    If you have fancy muffin tins in the form of mini ring cake, you can carefully remove them from the tins after cooling. You can then wash the molds thoroughly and dry them. If you pour in the melted chocolate for the decoration and press the mini Gugelhupf muffin back into the mold, you can easily give it a chocolate coat. It is only important that you then wait until the chocolate has hardened again. It is best to simply put the muffins in the fridge overnight.
