  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread millet on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring often, until toasted and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool, about 5 minutes.
  4. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
  5. Mix millet, flour, cornmeal, poppy seeds, 3 tablespoons sugar, lemon rind, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  6. Whisk milk, honey, canola oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups; sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean and tops are golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • Amount of sugar and honey can be increased or decreased to achieve desired sweetness.

I used spelt flour instead of all-purpose flour ,soy milk instead of cow's milk, and just eliminated the sugar. This made great muffins with a crunch! I'll be making these again!

the flavor was very good, but I would bake them for less time. Mine were a bit dry. Loved the lemony flavor though.
