These almond poppy seed muffins will leave you feeling like you just enjoyed dessert for breakfast. Full of delicious vanilla and almond flavor and a crunch from the toasted almonds. A versatile muffin batter recipe is essential for any baker! This batter is my favorite and is so easy to customize to make blueberry, almond poppy seed, cinnamon streusel or lemon poppy seed muffins.
Fill muffin cups half way with batter. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, if desired.
