Ingredients

  • ¾ cup millet

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal

  • 1 ½ tablespoons poppy seeds

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk

  • ¼ cup honey

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 1 egg

  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar, or as needed (Optional)

Directions

  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.

Cook's Note:

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