Blueberry Lemon Chia Muffins

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup Spelt Flour
  2. 1 ½ tsp Baking Powder (aluminum free)
  3. Pinch of Sea Salt
  4. 1 Ripe Banana
  5. ½ cup Applesauce
  6. ¼ cup Honey (or Maple Syrup for vegan)
  7. 2 tbsp Grapeseed Oil (or melted coconut oil)
  8. 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  9. Zest of 1 Lemon
  10. 1-1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  11. 1 cup Fresh Blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Whisk together the spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash the banana and add the applesauce, honey, oil, chia seeds and lemon zest. Whisk until well blended. Add the lemon juice and stir briefly to mix.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, stir gently just until flour is mixed in.
  5. Fold in the blueberries.
  6. Quickly spoon the batter into muffin tins and place in the oven. I use silicone muffin tins, so no need for greasing the tray. If using a metal muffin tin lightly grease or use baking paper, before spooning mixture in.
  7. Bake for about 22 mins, until center springs back when touched.
  8. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then move to a cooling rack.
  9. Makes 10-12 regular sized muffins or 8 extra large muffins.
