Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

My mood has been on an all time high recently now that the weather is finally warming up, the days are crazy long,  and it really feels like Spring. And along with that, I’m looking forward to all the lighter and more colorful dishes, along with some grill recipes and tart baked goods to celebrate this new season.

And when I say tart baked goods, I mean all things lemon and citrus based. I just love the sour and sweet combo and I find it so refreshing and delicious, which is why I was so excited to make these Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. These are grain free and nut free, made with cassava flour, and they are so lemony and Spring-y. I’ve been enjoying one in the morning with a hot mug of coffee to wash it all down and it’s been just the thing I need to brighten up my breakfast dish.

While the muffins themselves are fluffy and delicious on their own, I highly recommend you make the coconut lemon glaze to drizzle on top of them. It adds an extra lemony flavor to make this recipe shine even more, and adds a bit more moisture which is always good news when it comes to muffins.

Also, don’t forget the poppy seeds. They add a nutty and slightly fruity flavor, which complements so well with the lemons and makes the muffins extra tasty and special!

I guest posted these Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins recipe on Lauren Geertsen’s blog, Empowered Sustenance, so go check it out there. I hope you love them as much as I do!:

“Roasted” Garlic Lemon Paleo Instant Pot Broccoli

Make perfectly steamed Paleo Instant Pot Broccoli, along with the most delicious “roasted” garlic lemon dressing, all without turning on the oven!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Paleo Instant Pot Broccoli

Broccoli is one of those side dishes that’s a staple in our house. It goes well with almost all dishes, and it’s one of the few vegetable that my husband actually enjoys. I used to love roasted broccoli, but recently switched over to the steamed version. Either way, broccoli is just so delicious in all forms, and I especially love it seasoned with garlic and lemon.

One of the newest ways I’ve been cooking broccoli that’s been a LIFE CHANGER is in the Instant Pot. It’s so easy, SO quick, and there are just so many less dishes at the end of it all. In this “Roasted” Garlic Lemon Paleo Instant Pot Broccoli, both the garlic and broccoli are cooked in the Instant Pot and all if it’s done in less than 30 minutes.

You may be confused with the instructions when it says that you set the Instant Pot to 0 minutes for the broccoli, but that’s correct. The broccoli will cook super quickly as the Instant Pot comes to pressure, and that’s all it needs. You release the pressure as soon as you hear it beep, and you’ll have a perfectly cooked broccoli that’s ready to be seasoned.

And the “roasted” garlic lemon dressing, guys. I kinda wanna put it on EVERYTHING. It’s such a great flavor combo and I couldn’t stop eating these until they were gone. If you are in need of a new way to prepare your broccoli, I highly recommend you try this Instant Pot method, because it’s absolutely delicious. I’m pretty sure this will be the only way we cook broccoli until we get sick of it!

AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

These AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are made with grass-fed gelatin, making them a healthy, gut-healing treat. You won’t believe how easy they are to make!

Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

I’ve been making gummy treats at home ever since I learned about grass-fed gelatin and its amazing health benefits, especially when it comes  to gut healing and skin health. It brings me back to my childhood when I would beg my mom to get me gummy treats all the time. They are so chewy and yummy, and I love how there are endless variations when it comes to their flavors and shapes, especially when you make it at home.

These AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are my newest favorite flavor with a delicious combination of blueberries and lemon juice. It contains all real food ingredients with none of that crap that’s in conventional gummy candies like food colorings, starches, and processed sugars.

Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

If you don’t have a gummy mold, you can just make these in a small baking dish or a silicon ice tray. But I bought these adorable molds to make these healthy gummy bears and I’m seriously obsessed with how they turned out!

These Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are also great for a holiday treat because you can get themed molds to make different shapes. Halloween is just around the corner, so I made a few gummy worms in addition to the bears to get into the festive spirit. Aren’t they so cute? Hope you enjoy this super fun and nutritious recipe!
