These grab and go muffins are bursting with 2 types of berries, lemon flavor and poppyseeds.  The perfect use of summer berries!

Lemon Poppyseed Double Berry Muffins

Time for another Summer Fresh recipe!  This series brings you easy recipes that highlight fresh summer produce, and are oh sooooo tasty!

Today the focus is on summer fresh berries.  I stopped by the farmer's market this weekend and picked up some pints of fresh raspberries and blueberries.  They were so plump and juicy you could just eat them like candy.  These are the perfect berries to star in my infamous muffins.  

Ripe, plump and juicy raspberries and blueberries are the star of the show in these muffins but I've also upped the flavor by adding lemon zest and juice along with some poppyseeds for added texture.  Heaven in a muffin!  These came out moist and tender and bursting with lemon and berry flavors.  Absolutely nothing better than a muffin hot from the oven!


What Ingredients do I need?

  • fresh raspberries
  • fresh blueberries
  • lemon
  • poppyseeds
  • eggs
  • low-fat milk
  • canola oil
  • all purpose flour
  • sugar or alternative sugar 1:1 ratio (for Keto, low carb)
  • baking soda
  • salt

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use white whole wheat flour in place of the all purpose flour
  • Make mini muffins or small loaves instead

  • Doing a Keto diet or want lower carb? Use an alternative sugar of you choice as a substitute.  I like King Arthur's sugar alternative.

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • 1st rule of thumb when making muffins is not to "overmix" the batter.  You want it batter to just come together.  Little spots of flour is okay.
  • To get high muffin tops turn your oven up to 400 degrees.
  • Make sure you are using fresh baking powder.  To test put 1/2 teaspoon into 1/4 cup of boiling water.  If it bubbles, you are good.

  • Double the recipe for 12 muffins.
  • Muffins can be frozen individually and kept for 3 months.

  • Fill the muffin tin almost to the top for nice big muffins.
