Do you remember our first vegan protein muffin?
Well awhile back we got request if that recipe could be made with chia seeds and not flax meal. So, we tried it out.
Recipe for gluten-free egg-free chia seed protein muffin
And using whole chia seeds worked! Though it was a little on the chewy side but still good.
Sometimes when we do a recipe using flax meal and then try it again with chia seeds it does not always come out. After trying whole chia seeds we decided to try it with chia flour (ground up chia seeds) and does work a little better than the seeds, but has a stronger ‘chia seed’ taste. This is one reason we tend to use flax in a lot of our recipes.
Although with this vegan protein muffin recipe, we found chia seeds to work perfectly.
A nice change in texture compared to using flax.
Take out from warm oven let cool slightly and then enjoy.
A perfect traveling snack that is full of protein and fiber! That should keep you full and focused.
