I think it's fair to say that we have all had enough banana bread over the last few months. I am always in favor of switching things up so my husband and I don't get bored with our meals. I had never tried the classic lemon and poppyseed combination and my husband seemed skeptical, so I instantly knew that I had to try this and convert him.
If you want something fresh for summer and an easy grab-and-go breakfast, this recipe is for you! These taste exactly like the mega muffins from Starbucks. So save some money and time by making these at home for a quick morning breakfast. Enjoy!
