It is a great time to start shifting to a healthier body, soul, mind, and spirit! One of my favorite cookbooks is by Sweet Laurel that features recipes that are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar-free with vegan options. Their signature colors are pink and green and I found the perfect confectionary-like top to start the year healthy with a bit of whimsy. Scroll below to the recipe for Lemon Poppyseed Muffins!

Lemon Poppyseed Muffin Recipe

If you are out of paper muffin liners consider investing in a Silpat Nonstick Silicone Muffin Pan on top of the Silpat Nonstick Perforated aluminum tray. I love how the cleanup is so easy and the muffins are removed without having to overly grease the pan.
