Chia seeds are a magic ingredient that I love to work with. Lemon muffins, that is one of my favorite dessert is usually loaded with butter and sugar. I decided to play around with my favorite lemon recipe muffins and make it healthy. I replaced butter with olive oil and added chia seeds to it. They’re still fluffy and flavourful. To make things better, they’re also healthy now!
