Blueberry Chia Seed Muffins

Our Blueberry Chia Muffins Obsession

Yes, my household is currently obsessed with these muffins!!

They are delicious and made with so many healthy ingredients. They are also dairy free, nut free (school safe!), and gluten free for those with allergies and sensitivities.

 

What’s in blueberry chai muffins that makes them so healthy?

 

Coconut Flour

This gluten free flour is high in fiber – just 1 tbsp. has about 5 grams.
A ½ cup serving of coconut flour has 19 grams of protein and 9 grams of healthy fats. It is also a low glycemic food so will help maintain a healthy blood sugar level. These are just a few of the benefits of this amazing flour.

 

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a superfood! They are high in fiber – the 4 tbsp. of chia seeds in these muffins have almost 15 grams of soluble fiber. They are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is anti-inflammatory and 2 tbsp. of chia seeds contain 18% of the RDA for calcium. They have also been known to help boost energy and metabolism.

 

Blueberries

Blueberries
 are among the most nutrient dense berries – high in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and Manganese. They are one of the highest antioxidant foods and have been linked to heart health and anti-aging.

 

These muffins are quick to make and something you can feel good about feeding to the whole family!
