These Lemon Chia Seed Mini Muffins are the perfect treat when you are craving something sweet with less of the guilt! Made with coconut flour, these muffins are light, fluffy and full of flavour.
Coconut flour is naturally gluten-free and low in carbs. Plus it has more fibre and protein than standard flour! It also provides a lower glycaemic index than standard flour and therefore causes less of a spike in blood sugar levels. This is because coconut flour is high in fat and fibre, which work to slow down the release of sugar in the bloodstream.
Chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
