Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

Serving Size: 1 muffin | Serves: 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with liners or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together whole wheat four, white flour, sugar, baking powder, and chia seeds in a medium bowl.
  3. Mix together milk, oil, eggs, and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Divide the batter into muffin tins.
  5. Bake until the muffins are golden and a tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. This should take about 16–18 minutes.
  6. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Tip: Use 1 tablespoon lemon zest and 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice in place of the 1/3 cup lemon juice.
