Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are bright and cheery little muffins filled with lemon flavor and topped with a lemon drizzle! They're great for a little breakfast treat or a brunch addition.
The flavors of Lemon Poppy Seed is such a bright and cheery combination, and with spring coming up I've been craving all things lemon! I love mini muffins so these Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins were such a fun little treat.
I made these muffins for my family to have at breakfast throughout the week, alongside some scrambled eggs. It was a fun addition to our breakfast menu (typically we have boring toast!) and I can't wait to make them again. We also had them as an afternoon snack and post-dinner treat! These mini muffins are super versatile. And since they're mini, there are a lot of them so they seemed to stretch longer than regular sized muffins.

Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins Questions
What flavor does poppy seeds have?
Poppy seeds add a slightly nutty flavor along with some great texture to these muffins.
Can these be made into regular sized muffins?
Yes! Actually I have a very similar (and OLD!) recipe on my site for Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. I would bake these for 18-20 minutes if you make them regular sized muffins.
When should I serve lemon mini muffins?
These Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are great for breakfast alongside some scrambled eggs and bacon. They would also be a delicious sweet treat for brunch, served alongside a quiche or egg casserole.
Can regular yogurt be used instead of Greek yogurt?
Regular plain yogurt has a higher liquid content, as Greek yogurt has been strained. I think it would still work, it just might require a couple more minutes of baking time.
