Lemon Chia Seed Mufins
Recipe type: Baked Goods
  • 1½ cups spelt flour organic
  • ½ cup white flour unbleached, organic
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1½ tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1½ lemons juice and zest
  • ¼ cup coconut oil odorless
  • ¼ cup applesauce unsweetened
  1. Start by preheating your oven to 176 C / 350 F, and preparing your muffin tin with liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift in the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and stir till combined.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the wet ingredients; maple syrup, almond milk (or non-dairy milk of choice) lemon juice and zest, coconut oil and applesauce.
  4. Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, you don't want to over mix. Fold in the chia seeds and then divide equally filling your muffin liners ¾ of the way.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until slightly golden.
I used organic odorless coconut oil, but the regular stuff would work just fine here, as would canola oil so don't fret if you don't have coconut on hand.
