Get Glowing Power Muffins

Who would have thought there was such a thing as 100% healthy, energy infusing, get-glowing-skin muffins?  Packed with antioxidents, omega 3 fatty acids, protein and fiber, these guys offer a lot of bang for your nutritional buck.  Dense, slightly crunchy and lightly sweet.  And.  Low in calories as well as filling.

Sound like a dream?  Its not.

Here’s the recipe.  And its an easy one at that, so get excited!

Ingredients

1 cup of rolled oats (I use gluten free ones but you can use regular as well)

1/2 cup of chia seeds

1.5 teaspoon of baking powder

1 or 2 tablespoons of cinnamon (you choose.  I love it, so I used two)

1/3 cup of maple syrup

1/3 cup of non dairy milk (almond milk…soy milk…coconut milk-though not the kind in a can for cooking but the kind for drinking.  You choose the type of non dairy milk!)

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F/150 degrees C.  Lightly grease the cavities of the muffin pan.
  2. In a medium size bowl, combine the oats, chia seeds, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. Add in the maple syrup, milk, and last but not least, the vanilla.
  4. Still together until ingredients are well combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, filling each muffin cavity to the top.  They will not rise when baked.
  6. Bake the muffins for about 20 minutes, until firm to the touch.
  7. Cool for 3-4 minutes and then carefully remove from pan.  They should slide out easily but if not, use a butter knife to get them out.
  8. These are DELICIOUS warm, but just as good after they have cooled.
  9. I recommend them topped with coconut yogurt, though you can use anything you like.  Greek yogurt, honey, regular yogurt, nut butter, the skies the limit.  They are also equally tasty plain.  I ate several with nothing on top, as well as a few with the coconut yogurt.  Great both ways!
