Lemon poppy seed donuts

Gluten-free and dairy free lemon poppy seed donuts.

Growing up I loved going to the supermarket with my parents, especially because the final stop was always the bread aisle!

This is where I'd find those jumbo muffins - and the lemon poppy seed ones were my fave!!

Well, now that I know better, I had to find another way. And voilá!

This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free to avoid those common allergens that can cause havoc in our digestive system.

For fun, the muffins became donuts.
