  • 1⁄2 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1⁄4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup spelt flour


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 mini muffin pans with mini muffin liners.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together yogurt, oil, egg, milk, vanilla, honey, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined. In a small bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, poppy seeds, salt, and flour. Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl, just mixing until the ingredients barely come together.
