integrating nutrition, fitness, sprituality, conscious living, and a little sass

lemon poppyseed mugcake

photo 1I LOVE lemon poppyseed muffins, especially that delicious lemon glaze they typically have on top!

Last night, as I was rummaging through the spice drawer, I saw some poppy seeds and I was ecstatic to try a new recipe out! And…it was a COMPLETE success…this might be my new favorite breakfast, snack, dessert, whatever!!

I love that all of my mugcakes can be made dairy free by incorporating applesauce or pumpkin puree, but I must say I love the greek yogurt…especially as a topping!


  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/2 scoop perfect fit protein
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • 3 tbsps egg whites
  • 1 tbsp greek yogurt (substitute with applesauce or pumpkin puree to make it dairy free)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 dropper-ful of lemon stevia (you can also use 1 pack stevia and add more lemon juice!)
  • 3 tbsps water


  • Combine all dry ingredients, mix.
  • Add wet ingredients, mix.
  • Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes
  • After it cools squeeze the juice of a lemon slice over the top of the cake
  • Top with greek yogurt, honey, coconut nectar, or whatever your heart desires!!

To make a “glaze,” you could mix lemon juice, water, and stevia until desired consistency, OR you could combine lemon juice and honey, OR you could combine protein powder with lemon juice and water!
