LIGHT LEMON POPPY SEED MUFFINS

I did something this weekend that I’m kind of ashamed to mention, just incase there are northerners reading this.
I actually attended my very first hockey game.
I know. How ridiculous is that? So ridiculous that it’s actually quite sad. Did I mention i’m from Chicago? Yes! Now you get it. *Bowing head in shame*
Let me explain. Ice hockey is BIG in the north. And Chicago is the home of the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks have won the Stanley cup 5 times! I don’t think I should’ve been allowed to call myself a Chicagoan until now.
In fact, it should be a requirement for all Chicagoans to attend at least one hockey game prior to claiming the city as their home. Really.
The tickets were actually a little Valentines Day Gift for Anees, my shawarma and hockey loving husband. Don’t ask him to choose between the two. It could get ugly.
Sad to see the weekend go by so quick, I really had a great time at the game.
Now all I have to look forward to are these scrumptious. lightly sweetened. lightly tart. Lemon poppy seed muffins.
WARNING: They’ll make the house smell lemony fresh. In a non Pine Sol kinda way.
Prepping these muffins is super quick and easy. The use of coconut oil and butter combined gives you the nutrition and the perfect texture! If you want to go all butter, use 1 stick of butter and omit the coconut oil. I wanted the health benefits of coconut oil and the crumbly texture obtain from butter. I went half and half. Choose what’s right for you!
