Grapefruit Poppy Seed Muffins



If there was ever a day to make these muffins, it would be today. The weather is awful here. My morning commute included a drive through Narnia. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever driven through so many different types of weather to get to the office. But, I made it and am dreaming about these citrus filled muffins. They are light and the grapefruit flavor is absolutely wonderful. I ate these muffins ever single day for breakfast and did not get tired of them. I’m not one of those people who eat the same thing everyday for one meal and am ok, I definitely need a change. But with these, I did not mind in the least. They are that good. The day I made them, I think I had three! But I would argue the health benefits outweighed the fact that I ate three. Also, they were good. If you are looking form something to elevate your breakfast, this is it!

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tin with paper liners. In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar and grapefruit zest. Rub together with your fingertips until the sugar is moistened and fragrant. Add in the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds. Whisk to blend. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the melted butter, milk, yogurt, egg and vanilla. Whisk until well blended. Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and fold together just until incorporated and no dry streaks remain.
  2. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pans , filling each about 2/3 of the way full. Bake until the muffins are lightly browned and just set, about 20-22 minutes. Let cool in the pan, about 5 minutes. Gently remove from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Place the wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar with 2 tbsp. of the grapefruit juice. Add more juice as needed a tsp at a time until the glaze is thick but drizzelable. Drizzle some over each muffin top.
  4. In a small bowl combine the granulated sugar and grapefruit zest. Rub together until well combined. Sprinkle on top of each muffin.
