Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

  • Prepare a muffin tin with cooking spray or silicone liners. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Mix soy milk and 2 tsp of lemon juice together in a medium sized bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes until it begins to curdle.
  • Make your flax eggs. Mix 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds with 6 tbsp of water. Let sit for at least 5 minutes until the mixture gels up to the consistency of egg whites.
  • Meanwhile, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, poppy seeds, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add oil, flax egg, and remaining lemon juice into the bowl with the soy milk. Mix well. Stir in the remaining 2 tbsp of lemon zest.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the large bowl with dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Scoop batter into muffin pan. Fill each liner ⅔ of the way full, filling each liner evenly. If using the sugar topping, sprinkle on top of each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set in the center.
