FINALLY, what  beautiful weather we are having here in NY today!   I wanted to celebrate the coming of spring with something just as bright and light! Lemon Poppy Baked Donuts are the perfect way!  These donuts are SO easy to make, healthy, and are delicious. Using lemon Young Living Essential Oil helps gives these muffins the perfect flavor! They certainly are as light and bright as the sun shining today! 

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablesppon grated lemon zest
  • 5 drops of lemon Young Living Essential Oil

For the Lemon Glaze:


Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° oven.
  2. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  3. Whisk together all of the wet ingredients in another bowl. image1 (1)
  4. Gradually, add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, and stir just until the dry ingredients are all moistened. Do not over mix because the gluten in the batter will develop and toughen the muffins.  The batter will not be smooth.
  5. Fill the greased muffin cups about 2/3 of the way up.  image2
  6. Bake about 17 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean from the middle of one.
  7. Allow the muffins to cool for about 3 minutes and remove from the pan.

For the Lemon Glaze:

  1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
