Delicious  and kid friendly whole grain poppy seed muffin.

Make a double batch and freeze the extras for a fast breakfast or snack.

  1. I want to make these muffins this week. Sounds really good! I love the 2 dozen muffin tin, I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Guess this must be a necessity in your house! 🙂

    I don’t know what I did wrong, but these did not come out well. I did half white/wheat flour, made sure not to over mix, but they were chewy, stuck to the muffin liners, and were rather tasteless. I was looking forward to these…what happened?! :/

  3. I didn’t see Jenna’s comment til after I made these…mine were the same, kind of tasteless and hard. They would make good hockey pucks, though 🙂
