Jam Filled Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

I love muffins, I love muffins, I love muffins hey hey hey hey!

Muffins man. They really do the trick. For breakfast, for snacks, for dessert: muffins do it all. Until today I had yet to make a lemon poppy seed muffin — but I thought making a regular old text book muffin would not be very blog worthy or fun to eat. I’ve been on a mish to revamp the traditional lemon poppy seed muffin but had been lacking inventive ways to put my stamp on the classic baked good. While strolling through the bakery section of Whole Foods yesterday, I eyed a trough full of jelly donuts and boom: my idea for jam filled muffins was born. These muffins are gluten-free, sugar-free and reeeedic amazing. Not too sweet with a surprise jammy  center, these bite sized babies will have you singing muffins mannnnnn.
