OH she glows - Out the door Chia Power (doughnuts) Muffins

Like I mentioned I want to try a different recipe every week and as you can tell it's not been a week. 

I decided to make these out the door chia power muffins. I do run around a lot and have a lot of activities that get my body going and make me hungry. So I thought this would be perfect for before the gym, right after work when I'm always looking for something to eat to build up my energy again or before going to the gym in the morning..

These seemed perfect so I went ahead and made them. Preheat the oven to 150°C (about 350F).

This is what you'll need

3/4 cup gluten fre oat flour (I used normal spelt free flour)
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I just went for what looked right)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener
1/3 cup soya milk un-sweetend (the recipe normally calls for non dairy milk)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I used 2)

Dump all the dry ingredients into a bowl.

I then mixed them together

 Then I added the liquids and mixed them together too.

I then filled little muffin liners, making out exactly 12 muffins :) 

After 18 minutes I took the muffins out of the oven, personally I think I baked them a bit too long although the book recommends 22-26 minutes at 150°, it may be though that I should have baked it for less because it's not a doughnut or it's too thick, I'm not sure.

 This is what the muffins look like out of the baking tray.

 Up close and personal.

 From the inside. They're surprisingly nice and crunchy due to the chia seeds, which I love! 

This recipe was super easy to make as well and I enjoyed baking the muffins, I will definitely try out this recipe again and maybe add some lemon icing to the muffins I already have. I've had one already and can't wait to have another tomorrow :)

Happy baking :)
