  1. I’ve never used chia seeds but I see lots of recipes with it recently. Have to learn more about them. The muffins look packed with berries, they must be wonderfully moist.

  2. these muffins look great. I love using chia seeds in baking.

    I have made these so many times and love them.
    I cut the sugar by a little more than half the minimum by using Stevia and I also cut the oil a bit. I also double the blueberries…just great!
