Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe

It has been snowmaggedon around these parts and when the weather is that bad, I tend to bake (and cook) up a storm. I love having citrus desserts in winter because that, to me, brings a bit of brightness to the cold and dreary. So, with a foot of snow outside the door, I grabbed some lemons, some poppy seeds and Truvia® Baking Blend and headed into the kitchen. This recipe is better than anything you would get in a coffee shop and is so simple to make.
