Chocolate Chip Chia Mini Muffins

Hey guys! It’s been forever! Life has completely taken over and I have been so extremely busy that this pregnancy has been flying by! This past week, I decided to make my little one a treat and they actually came out so good, I had to share them with ya’ll. He has a little sweet tooth as do I so I decided to make something we both could indulge in. These are mini Chocolate Chip Chia Muffins made with Vanilla yogurt and I would like to give you a warning. [They are addicting!] I ate about 3 within 5 minutes of pulling them out of the oven. This was my first time baking with Chia and I am hooked. It’s so good for you and it definitely adds a little bit of texture to your baked goods. The best part, they were toddler approved. Which is extremely rare these days. Hope you like them and let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. I used a mini muffin tray which also cut the time. If using a mini muffin pan, keep and eye on the muffins and check after 15 mins.
