These Keto Lemon Muffins Have A Skin-Supporting Ingredient We Love – mindbodygreen.com

Lemon poppy seed muffins are a classic, but even the classics sometimes benefit from an update. This recipe, from Keto-Friendly Recipes: Bake It Keto by Jennifer Marie Garza, makes them a little better for us. With the clever swap of chia seeds for poppy seeds and the addition of collagen peptides, these keto muffins pack a protein punch.

Collagen peptides are the building blocks of collagen and is the form of collagen that is accessible for our body to absorb—it’s what makes it useful as a supplement. But what are the benefits of a collagen supplement? As we age, our collagen levels naturally decrease. Adding a supplement counteracts this and helps support healthy skin, hair, and nails by promoting elasticity and cellular hydration.*
