Healthy Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

upclose-lemon-chia-muffins-with-logo.jpg

Anyone else share our love for muffins? You can't beat a hot cup of coffee with a healthy and delicious muffin in the morning.

Today we decided to infuse our muffins with chia seeds. Chia seeds come packed with essential nutrients like protein, fiber, iron and Omega-3s. We love to power-up our recipes with these incredible tiny superseeds.

Here is the full recipe:

Ingredients:

1 c whole wheat flour

3/4 c Barlean's Flax-Chia-Coconut

1/3 c organic light brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 c Greek yogurt

4 Tbsp Barlean's coconut oil

2 large eggs

2 Tbsp lemon zest

2-4 drops of lemon essential oils

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp almond extract

Frosting:

1 can of chilled coconut cream. (Whip together with an electric hand mixer for maximum fluffiness).

Instructions:

Mix together dry and wet ingredients separately, then slowly combine while stirring. Place batter into muffin holders. Bake for 12-13 minutes at 400 degrees.  We frosted the muffins and sprinkled with chia seeds and lemon zest. Best served right out of the oven.
