Poppyseed Muffins

Let’s be honest for a minute. I go on Pinterest and I see amazing breakfast recipes but who has time for that in the morning before work? Cinnamon pancakes with a perfect swirl are not going to happen at 6 am.  But I still want a decent breakfast! I know I sound greedy, but that means you haven’t had these muffins for breakfast. I get my beauty sleep and a good breakfast every day.

I didn’t come up with this recipe but when I moved out of my parents house I made sure I brought it with me.  Yes, I have been eating these muffins (almost) every morning for the past 10 years.  I occasionally decide to try something new but I keep coming back to the Poppyseed Muffins.

So how do I eat muffins every morning?  I freeze them!  I eat 2 muffins every morning so 1 batch will last me approximately 12 days and I usually make 2 batches at a time.  
Did you do the math?  I make muffins once a month and I have breakfast every work day! Every morning I pull 2 out of the freezer, put them in the microwave for 30 seconds and I have a warm breakfast.  Yum!
People at work are jealous too.  I had one person who was new run to the diner in our building to buy them, I felt so bad for him.  But I don’t blame him because I would do the same, they taste as delicious as they look!
See the receipe below for details.  Mix all the ingredients together and bake, super easy.

I hope you enjoy!
