Lemon Blueberry Chia Seed Muffins

Looking for a taste of Spring? These Lemon Blueberry Chia Seed Muffins are a fun twist on traditional poppy seed muffins! Made with wholesome ingredients and bursting with flavor. 

I’ve been craving a lemony treat, and these hit the spot. The sweetness of the blueberries pairs well with the citrus. Also, these are gluten-free friendly for those with Celiac Disease, when using gluten-free oats. 

I love keeping a stash of homemade muffins in my fridge during the week for a quick snack or sweet treat. If you enjoy these muffins, check out my Super Seed Muffins, too!
