Chia Muffins Via Dr Oz Show shared by a Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Dr Oz Recipe for Chia Muffins

Chia Muffins


1 tbsp ground chia seeds      

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sweet potato purée
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce 
2 egg whites
1/2 cup agave syrup
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Mix together wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.

Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

Scoop into muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350˚F. 

Okay, we had to go in search of agave syrup. It does not exist in Mount Vernon TX.
So I had to substitute and I looked online and we chose to use a bit of honey and some organic molasses I had. I could have used organic maple syrup.  I keep a large container of Chia seeds in my refrigerator and I shake it on almost anything coming out of the kitchen.

I also substituted Organic Pumpkin in place of Sweet potato puree.  I have sweet potatoes but did not want to cook them and puree them. Once we make a run into Dallas I will have some in my pantry as these were delicious.   You could substitute raisins for the dried cranberries or you might even use fresh blueberries. I had dried cranberries here to use.

These are only suppose to be under 150 calories per muffin.

For health and strength and daily Bread,  We give you thanks, O Lord.
Check in tomorrow for another tasty treat.
