Almond Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

Almond Poppy Seed Mini Muffins are filled with almond flavor and are so great for an easy breakfast or a side at brunch! They can be made into full-sized almond poppy seed muffins, but I love them mini – they’re just so cute!

I love a good muffin and I really love anything that has almond flavoring, so no surprise that I’m obsessed with these Almond Poppy Seed Mini Muffins! This is actually a really old recipe that I have been making for 10 years and I love it every single time I make it. They’re such fun muffins with the almond extract and poppy seeds, and mini muffins are always just so adorable. They’re the perfect size for kids or a lighter addition to another breakfast/brunch item!

What You’ll Need

  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Milk
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Almond Extract
  • Egg
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Poppy Seeds

How to Make Almond Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

These muffins have such great almond flavor and texture from the poppy seeds. They also are super fluffy from the addition of yogurt in the batter! They are also so easy to make. Muffins are just like quick breads, in that they don’t need yeast to rise – just the addition of baking powder or baking soda. Baking powder is the best to get muffins that have domed tops, so I mostly used that in this recipe.

To start making these mini muffins with almond extract, whisk together vegetable oil, sugar, egg, almond extract, yogurt, and milk. These are your wet ingredients. To this mixture, stir in baking powder, salt, and baking soda until combined, followed by the flour. Stir in the flour until just combined – don’t overstir! Lastly, fold in the poppy seeds.

Divide the batter between mini muffin cups and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. You can also make these into regular muffins, just bake them closer to 15 minutes!
