These healthy coconut chia seed muffins are delicate in flavour and texture, made with creamy Greek yogurt, coconut oil, toasted coconut flakes and superfood chia seeds.
I recently figured this out (although I’ll admit it was a fluke!). My intention was to prepare lemon muffins with chia seed instead of poppy seeds…only to realize last minute (which happens often), that I didn’t have any fresh lemons on hand! So, I opted for crunchy, toasted coconut flakes to give a sweet kick to these light-tasting muffins.
The result was…well, heavenly! I love the flavour of these light, fluffy “clean-tasting” muffins-not too sweet but with hidden bites of sweetness from the coconut flakes and crunch from the chia seeds.
To say these were scrumptious is an understatement! The entire family devoured them and asked for seconds!
In retrospect, I should have made these with gluten-free flour (so I could devour them as well) but
being the wonderful wife that I am, I decided to grant my husband’s request to prepare snacks that he can also enjoy (because apparently, anything gluten-free is not “real” food!).
