Healtheries Ground Chia, Oat, Blueberry and Orange Muffins – What a Mouthful.

I have to be honest, these must be the healthiest and heaviest muffins I have ever made. They are pretty dense and almost healthy. I wasn’t convinced that I would like them and I would get negative feedback from my taste testing work mates, but no.

I did like them and so did they. I would say that these are defiantly the bread end of the scale for muffins and I think they batter would make an excellent loaf. I may just have to test that theory out.

I got 5 large muffins out of the batter, next time I would keep them smaller as they were rather filling. They were very moist and I couldn’t taste the Healtheries Ground Chia at all. Over all, I was impressed with the healthy muffin I created and would make it again.
