  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup poppy seeds
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • 1/3 cup honey, slightly warmed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (flavorless)
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp lemon rind, grated

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray 12 muffin cups.

Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg lightly, then whisk in the juice, honey, oil, lemon extract and lemon rind. Make a well in the dry mixture, add the liquid, and stir briefly, just until the batter is uniformly blended. Give the batter a few moments to rest. Divide batter evenly between the muffin cups.

Bake the muffins for 20 minutes. Cool the muffin pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then remove the muffins from the pan.
