Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins

Posted by Joe Wicks in Recipes

You've got to try these lemon and poppy seed muffins from my new 90 Day Plan.


Makes 12

260g plain flour

Zest and juice of 2 lemons

1 tbsp poppy seeds

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

A pinch of salt

120g vanilla protein powder

25g butter, melted

400g yoghurt, such as Greek, natural, soya

4 medium bananas (400g peeled weight)

3 large eggs, beaten

60g agave syrup

50g low-fat cream cheese


Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Combine the flour, lemon zest, poppy seeds, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Put the protein powder, butter, yoghurt, bananas, eggs, lemon juice and half of the agave syrup into a liquidiser and blend until smooth. Pour into the dry ingredients and fold together until smooth.

Divide the mixture between a 12-hole deep muffin tin lined with paper cases then bake for 30 minutes until risen and golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Mix together the remaining agave syrup and the cream cheese then spread over the tops of the muffins.


  • If you plan on freezing the muffins we recommend doing so before icing them. Simply remove the paper cases then wrap individually in clingfilm before freezing

  • This recipe might make more or less than 12 muffins depending on your portions and size of your muffin tin. To calculate one serving, divide the total amount by 6
