For the batter:


  • Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a greased or lined muffin tin.
  • In a small bowl, mix together flax seed meal and warm water until combined. Allow them to sit for 5 minutes and solidify to make 'flax eggs'.
  • In a bowl combine flax eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, oil, applesauce, maple syrup and almond milk
  • Stir in flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon + chia seeds.
  • Pour batter in to greased muffin tins
  • Bake for 20 minutes until edges are golden brown and toothpick comes out clean when inserted inside.


Substitutions for these Healthy Lemon Chia Seed Muffins:
  • If you don't want to flax eggs you can use 2 regular 
  • If you don't have flax seed meal, you can pulse flax seeds in a food processor or blender until they are fine.
  • You can sub maple syrup with honey
  • I haven't tried making these muffins gluten free, but you may be able to substitute whole wheat flour with gluten free flour
