Lemon & Poppyseed Muffins

These muffins are perfect for breakfast or brunch, as well as afternoon tea! Dairy and gluten free, your tastebuds and tummy will love them. Swapping flour for almond meal provides a natural source of protein, dietary fibre and vitamin E. It is a great substitute for gluten containing flours and won’t cause tummy bloat. Yippee!
