  • 3 cups oat flour
  • ⅓-⅔ cup sugar or sweetener of choice to taste
  • 2 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1⅓ cups yogurt of choice
  • ½ lemon juiced optional
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup grated zucchini drained
  • decorating sugar for topping optional


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Separately, whisk together yogurt, coconut oil, lemon zest, and eggs.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet until just combined—don’t overmix!
  • Stir in the grated zucchini last. I recommend first placing grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and squeezing to remove excess moisture!
  • Transfer to a jumbo muffin tin, sprayed with cooking spray. (I use 2 scoops of a regular-sized ice cream scoop, or about ½ cup. Fill the muffins almost to the top, but not all the way!)
  • Bake for 5 minutes at 400°F (200°C), and then lower to 350°F (180°C) and bake 20-22 minutes. They are done when tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly before popping out of the tin and enjoying!
  • Yields 6 jumbo healthy lemon poppy seed muffins.
