3) Strawberry and Chia Muffins
You can also eat chia seeds in muffins, bread, and other baked goods. We recommend preparing them at home to control the ingredients you use. In this case, we’re bringing a strawberry and chia muffin recipe, and you will need whole wheat flour, baking powder, one egg, vanilla, plain yogurt without added sugar, almond milk (or regular milk if you prefer), coconut oil, chia seeds, strawberries, and the sweetener of your choice.
To prepare the muffins, you also need muffin pans. Grease them with coconut oil and start mixing the dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the egg, sugar, coconut oil, and yogurt. Once you have the dry and wet ingredients mixed in different bowls, mix them and include the milk until the dough is thick but easy to handle. Pour some strawberries cut in pieces and take the blend into the muffin cups. Place more strawberries on top and bake for 25 minutes.
Chia seeds are nutritional powerhouses. That is why they became so popular, even in countries where they do not typically grow. Now they are available in almost any market, and there are many ways to include them in your diet. You can sprinkle chia seeds in your salad or prepare creative recipes and even an alternative sports drink.
