  1. I made these with granular and powdered erythritol and they were so good! Very lemony and zesty, next time I may even add more poppy seeds and lemon zest.

    • Hi Chelly,

      We use either xylitol, liquid stevia, erythritol or Natvia (erythritol and stevia blend) interchangeably in each recipe. Just beware that both liquid stevia and xylitol are sweeter than the others and xylitol is also toxic to pets. I hope that answers your question.

  2. If I wanted to make in a loaf pan, how long would you recommend to bake? Also if I only have powdery/granular sweetener do you think that would be ok for the frosting or do I need to seek out icing style?

    • Hi Kim,

      I would recommend seeking out a powered or confectioners sweetener for the frosting as granulated sweetener won’t dissolve

      For a loaf pan, I would recommend dropping the temperature to 170C/340F and baking for 30 minutes to start with and monitor closely until it is cooked through. I estimate that it would take 50 minutes to cook through, but it’s better to keep an eye on it and have it turn out perfect. Let us know how it goes.

  3. Would I be able to substitute lemon zest for almond extract to get something closer to the poppy seed muffins that aren’t lemon? Or is the zest somehow part of the structural integrity of the muffin? (Like, does the citrus cause a reaction to help them rise or something like that)

    • Hi Brittany,

      The lemon zest is purely included for flavor and substituting will not affect the structure. I’d love to hear how almond ones turn out!

  4. I make these all the time now, they are amazing. Yesterday I added raspberry extract and now they are like a raspberry lemonade, so yummy. I changed the frosting to cream cheese rather than butter and I add more poopy seeds. I use swerve as my sugar. I’m going to keep changing up the flavors to see what else is tasty, I was thinking of trying a banana extract with some nuts instead next time.

  5. Very yummy! Is it really 366 calories for one little cupcake? I love them so much I want more, but hesitate with tha calorie count!

  6. I love poppy seeds! I’m gonna try this very soon. Perfect is, that we are major producers of poppy seeds, so it is very cheep here in central Europe. About 4-6 dollars for 1kg (aprox. 2.2 pounds)..:-) We also make desserts only with poppy seeds, eggs, butter, little bit of lemon and sugar substitutes. Yummy…
