Apple and Chia Breakfast Muffin

Breakfast/Brunch is my favourite meal of the day even if it’s my just porridge, I love it. At the weekends is when I usually have time to do something a little different. Recently I made these Apple and Chia Breakfast Muffins and quite frankly would love to have them every single day ( they do freeze well yipeeee!).  I put chia in EVERYTHING (smoothies, shakes, salads, oats, muffins…the list goes on), another superfood with lots of health benefits…

  • Loads of nutrients with very few calories
  • Almost all carbs in them are fibre
  • High in protein
  • High in Omega 3 fatty acids

They are becoming more and more easy to find but not always that cheap. I get mine from Bulk Powders.

Ingredients ( Makes 5)

  • 1 medium sized apple grated (I love using pink lady apples)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 25g chia seeds ( I used Bulk Powders)
  • 60g Sukrin Gold
  • 10g chia seed powder (I used Bulk Powders)
  • 40ml rapeseed oil
  • 1 egg (I used Two Chicks)
  • 1 tsp TRKG vanilla skinny syrup ( Use my code TRKGRUN10 for 10% off)
  • 60g wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oats ( I used Quaker)
  • Low calorie cooking spray

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven  180°C
  2. In a large bowl mix apple, cinnamon, lemon zest, chia seeds, Sukrin Gold, salt, oil, syrup, and egg, until combined.
  3.  Leave for 5 minutes to allow the chia seeds to expand
  4. Meanwhile mix the flour, chia powder, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a separate bowl.
  5. Stir the apple mixture into the dry ingredients to form a batter. Divide evenly between the muffin cases ( spray the muffin cases with low calorie cooking spray), and then scatter over the oats.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until risen and springy to the touch.
