Grain-free Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

Who doesn't want a muffin in morning?

I'll get right to it with these bad boys. Or... good boys depending on how you look at it ;)

This recipe was adapted from Amyella's Recipes

Lemon Chia Seed Muffins:

2 eggs (organic, cage-free)
1 tbls vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbls lemon juice
2 1/2 cup almond flour (blanched or unblanched, I used unblanched)
Dash of sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 heaping tbls black chia seeds


Separate the eggs, put the egg whites in a small bowl and egg yolks in a large mixing bowl. Combine the vanilla, honey, olive oil and lemon juice in with the egg yolks and mix well. Add in the almond flour, salt, baking soda and chia seeds. Mix thoroughly until a batter begins to form. Whip the egg whites and then pour into the batter and blend them in well.

Pour into greased muffin tins or muffin lined tins and bake at 350 degrees for 15-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I kept mine in the fridge (I'm a tad OCD and paranoid so I keep most things in the fridge), anyway they are super moist and delicious! I had two already this morning...

Enjoy ;)
