Sweet on Trader Joe's: Greek Yogurt Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This week, our "sweet" is breakfast...Trader Joe's Greek Yogurt Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins.

The kiddo and I are big fans of lemon-poppy seed anything, and who can resist a muffin for breakfast? Certainly not this girl.

These are sold in a package of 4 for $3.99. Our Trader Joe's has them over by the breads, rather than by the baked goods.

A mom's (my) take: At first glance, what I love about these muffins is that they look homemade. They're not perfectly the same size, and the muffin tops vary in color from deep golden to pale yellow. I've been to many a buffet breakfast where muffins were purchase at a warehouse store, and they look like they were made by a robot (and they taste that way). In contrast, you could totally take these muffins out of the package and pass them off as homemade...not that we would ever do something like that. Taste-wise? Spot on. The muffins are nice and lemony with just the right amount of crunch from the poppy seeds. They're substantial, but not dense, and moist without falling apart. Paired with some of TJ's fresh cut fruit, these make a super easy breakfast for busy mornings!
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: I absolutely love the texture of the dough: it's moist, but not overly so. The taste makes it very obvious very quickly that they are lemon flavored, but it doesn't leave a weird aftertaste, and, as a bonus, the poppy seeds from these muffins never seem to get stuck in my teeth! Maybe that's just me. :)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
