Mini Poppy Seed Muffins (Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free)

It’s unofficially shower season. Whether it’s a graduation shower, bridal shower or a baby shower it seems to be the season for celebrating. Be it brunch or drinks & apps or something more, this months Recipe Redux is here to help you prepare.

I have made these poppy seed muffins for countless showers and they are always a hit. I wanted to test out a new recipe to make these little bites of goodness gluten-free. These muffins are soft and fluffy, slightly sweet with just a touch of lemon flavor. Speckled throughout are tiny, poppy seeds to add a little crunch.

Besides the fact that mini muffins are just downright cute, they’re also great for snacking. Their bite-sized form makes a wonderful addition among a spread of other foods.

I feel like the true test to many of my baking attempts is whether or not my kids will eat whatever it is I make. I’m happy to report these muffins stood the test, and I didn’t think I could photograph them in time before their tiny hands had grabbed them all.

I kept these poppy seeds muffins simple but if you want to add a little more pizzazz make my strawberry butter to go with them. Your guest will go crazy for this sweet and creamy addition.
