- 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.
