Have you heard? It’s all about chia seeds these days.
They’re full of full of fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and calcium. I love chia pudding, which is thickened by the reaction between the chia seeds and the liquid. I also like to throw a tablespoon of these seeds into my smoothies.

Chia Seed Blueberry Muffins
$.52 per muffin
- 2 cups gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbs chia seeds
- 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil cooled a bit
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups blueberries fresh or frozen
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin pan with butter or coconut oil.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Place the chia seeds and chopped pineapple in a food processor or blender. Process for about 20 seconds to chop them very finely.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir in the pineapples and chia seeds.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir to combine. Fold in the blueberries.
Transfer the batter to the muffin pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cook on a wire rack and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. These muffins can also be frozen for several months.
You can substitute white whole wheat flour if you'd prefer. Add an extra tablespoon of chopped pineapple to make up for the thirstier nature of whole wheat flour.
