  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and lightly grease a 6 hole muffin tin.
  2. Mix together the flour, almonds, coconut sugar/stevia, poppy seeds, baking powder and bicarb in a bowl.
  3. Whisk together the lemon zest and juice, almond milk, vinegar, melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla then pour into the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
