Healthy Almond Poppy Seed Muffins

Healthy Almond Poppy Seed Muffins

I was in the mood to bake something this weekend and was determined to make something with what I had available in my pantry and the fridge.  So I ended up narrowing it down to light and healthy version of our almond poppy seed muffins.  My husband had been asking me to make him some. Lucky for him we had all the ingredients to make this and it came out moist and fluffy out of the oven.

Ingredients:

1-3/4 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup organic cane sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. sea salt

2 tsp. poppy seeds

1 egg

3/4 cup milk (reduced fat)

1/4 cup grape seed oil

1 – 1/1/4 tsp. almond extract
