Sour Cream Muffins with Lemon and Poppy Seeds

April 4, 2011 | Breads, Breakfast,

I have been really trying to limit less than complex carbs and sugars in my diet, but every once in awhile you need to bake something sweet. These muffins are actually not overly sweet, and I substituted some whole wheat flour for some of the white flour. You can omit the poppy seeds if you don’t like picking them out of your teeth, and you could add a cup of blueberries instead. The lemon flavor is mild, so if you want more lemon zing, add the zest of a second lemon to the batter.
