Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Alright folks, I found another good one. I just bought a new cookbook called Paleo Indulgences, by Tammy Credicott, and she actually lives in Bend, Oregon (where I live) which I found out after I bought the book from Amazon. Anyway, they are healthy- dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free, and they are seriously the best lemon muffins I've ever had. They are moist, they stay together and dont crumble, and are insanely flavorful, and sweet. They are very simple and only took me about 15 min to make. I am not too crazy about Lemon flavors in desserts or pastries, but holy cow these are amazing. Try 'em out! 

The Paleo journey continues...
