Tools Needed

Blueberry Chia Muffins: Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

almond flour – good source of protein, naturally gluten free

cassava flour – I like mixing some cassava or tapioca flour to the mixture so that the muffin batter is not too heavy

fresh blueberries (can use frozen blueberries) – Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants. You can use fresh or frozen in this recipe. Use half pureed and the other half whole. 

coconut sugar – adds sweetness without a huge insulin spike 

baking soda – to rise 

tablespoon of chia seeds – filled with healthy fats and gives a nice little crunch to the muffins 

demerara sugar – just a touch for a little extra sweetness and bakery style taste and texture 

sea salt – enhances the flavor of the other ingredients 

Wet Ingredients

egg (room temperature) – added as a binder and to help the muffins rise. 

maple syrup – adds depth

apple cider vinegar – reacts with baking soda it causes the muffins to rise 

vanilla extract – smooth taste 

coconut oil – melted for good consistency. Butter may be substituted for an even ingredient swap. 

How to Make Blueberry Muffins with Chia Seeds

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Step 2: In a large bowl, use a whisk to thoroughly mix almond flour, cassava flour, baking soda and salt. 

Step 3: In a separate bowl add egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, vinegar, vanilla extract and blueberry puree.

Step 4: Add coconut sugar to the wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. 

Step 5: Combine wet ingredients with flour mixture. 

Step 6: Gently fold in whole blueberries. 

Step 7: Use a muffin scoop to fill prepared muffin pans about 3/4  of the way. 

Step 8: Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with chia seeds and demerara sugar. 

Step 9: Bake for 25 minutes. 

Step 10: Turn off the oven and cook for five minutes more. 

Step 11: The top of the muffins should be brown on top and a toothpick insert inside should come out clean.

Step 12: Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and relocating to a wire rack to continue cooling. 

Step 13: Serve with a delicious cup of almond milk or your favorite cup of herbal tea. 

Storing and Freezing Muffins

Store muffins in a paper towel lined airtight container or resealable plastic baggie on the countertop for up to three days. The paper towel will prevent the muffins from getting too soggy due to extra moisture. 

For longer storage, you can freeze the muffins. To do this, wrap each muffin individually in wax paper before storing them in a freezer safe resealable bag for up to 3 months. 

Q & A 

Q: Can I use an egg substitute like chia egg in this recipe?

A: I don’t see why not. If you have an egg allergy, give it a try and see how it works out.
