Coconut Flour Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Since trying the Paleo Diet, I have been looking for alternative ways to have something sweet. I’ve been experimenting with coconut flour and I have to say it’s my new favourite thing! Coconut flour is definitely a delicious alternative to wheat and has many health benefits.
