This is the recipe for the blueberry muffins we made at our last workshop!
No fat, no sugar so they will always rise! You have to understand that the reason regular cakes and cupcakes are difficult to make is because the fat and sugar are very heavy, making it hard to rise. If we mess the measurements, disaster happens and you may end up with a flat muffin. So here we work only with natural ingredients, using the fruit to add juiciness and flavour. The chia helps by holding it together and by adding humidity to it. Remember to always hydrate you chia before eating or they will hydrate in your tummy, getting stock there!
These are like all bran muffins, deliciously healthy and with alkaline ingredients which means natural ingredients without GMOs. If you follow the recipe, also use your intuition, see how much fruit you want in, how much banana, etc…
