Diabetic Chia Seed Recipe: Chia Seed Muffins (GF)

Fall is the time of year for one dish meals of soup, stew and chili. Wouldn’t it be great to have a muffin with your steaming bowl of goodness? You can! (It won’t give you blood sugar problems either…). Check out my Diabetic Chia Seed Recipe for Chia Muffins! Read on to find out how this all possible…(it’s gluten free too)

Chia muffins are gluten free, low carb, high in protein and high in fiber…so all you need for lunch is a bowl of soup and your muffin! You really will be satisfied for hours!!!

Diabetic Chia Seed Recipe:
Chia Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups Chia Meal (ground up Chia seeds)
  • 2 cups eggs (approx. 8 large eggs)
  • ½ cup organic coconut oil (gently melted to liquid)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/16 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. Bob’s Red Mill Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup RAW honey (don’t freak out, this equals 1 tsp. of honey per muffin)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Gently warm the coconut oil to liquid temp (don’t get it really hot, just warm!)
  4. Blend eggs and honey to smooth in a blender. Add the melted coconut oil and blend well.
  5. Add the blended eggs/honey/oil with the dry ingredients and mix with a wisk. (Do not mix in your blender, the Chia will quickly soak up the liquid and turn into Chia gel)
  6. Set aside for 5-7 minutes. The Chia meal will soak up the liquid and the mix will thicken.
  7. Line a 12 muffin tin with parchment muffin cups.
  8. Fill each cup with the Chia muffin mix. (It should be a bit thicker than pancake batter)
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 22 minutes. The tops should be brown, if they aren’t, rotate the muffin tin and bake for another 2 minutes.
  10. Remove from the tin and let cool on a cooling rack.

Serving Suggestion: Eat with a one dish meal or a salad, or as a snack with nut butter.

Refrigerate:
For up to 5 days.

Freeze: These muffins freeze very well. Simply pop in a bag and freeze.

Cut The Fat: If you want to reduce the fat and substitute ½ the oil for apple sauce the muffins are equally as good but do not rise as well.

This is the brand of Chia Seeds I use:

Whole Chia Seeds:  Now Foods White Chia Seed (white is better for baking than black Chia seeds).

I grind the Chia Seeds in my Vitamix – takes about 30 seconds. I also my Vitamix to grind flax for my Flax Bread, make Green Smoothies, make Coconut Flour Muffins, Chocolate Cupcakes and delicious Chocolate Smoothies! I use my Vitamix everyday! (as you can tell…lol). You can buy a Vitamix here.

You can also grind chia seeds in a Spice and Nut Grinder. Store your chia meal in the freezer!

Coconut Oil And Cholesterol

Coconut oil contains a high amount of saturated fat as does palm oil, butter, dairy, cheese, lard, eggs and animal fat.

Eating coconut oil raises cholesterol in high risk people. If you have ANY blood fat issues, including high cholesterol, it’s better that you don’t eat coconut oil or any other saturated fats.

For the rest of you ladies you can enjoy the occasional baked good made with coconut oil. If you’re eating coconut oil regularly and you notice a negative change in your blood fats, including cholesterol – stop eating coconut oil and ALL other saturated fats immediately.
