At first I was just going to redirect my friend to another blog/recipe. But I quickly realized that none of the food blogs I read had lemon poppy seed recipes either!
I did a little recipe searching and experimenting. Here is what I came up with. Moist. Slightly sweet. Lots of lemon flavor.
A real food recipe for lemon poppy seed muffins. I would actually eat these! Especially warm from the oven with lots of real butter.

6 Tbsp. lemon juice

Fill paper lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes.
