Easy 6 Ingredient Lemon Chia Seed Muffins

6 Ingredient Banana Bread - Or Lemon Chia Seed if you're so inclined...

I know I have been gone as of late, not posting, not writing, not anything really.  But I'm back and ready to get typing again!  I have so much to share with you all that I will really have to write a whole  post about it but for now, lets just get started, shall we?

So, this is my sisters recipe and I have simply added Chia seeds and lemon extract to her already fabulous banana bread recipe to make it a little healthier.

This is one of the simplest recipes to whip up for hungry children in the morning.  I really love to have them on hand, pretty much all the time. And then the kids know that they can help themselves any time they like.

So the 6 ingredient recipe she gave me is:

2 overripe banans
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil or butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup flour

How simple, right?!?  (I've got it memorized since I make it so often.)

And aren't they cute.  I like to make the mini muffins for the kids, I find there is less waste if they an help themselves to 1 or 2 muffins rather than trying to finish a whole large muffin.

Now today I thought I wold try something new.  Why not add some chia seed to them, they are kind of like poppy seeds so I can make them lemon too.  Woohoo!  And they'll add a little protein and those fabulous antioxidants to my breakfast.

So I did the recipe above and added

2 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup chia seeds

mix it all together…

Yes, I use my food processor, sshhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone, that is why they have such high peaks, you shouldn't mix them so much.

But look how beautiful they turned out!  I was so excited I just had to share!  So here you go, and have a lovely morning!  And don't forget a good cup of coffee…  coffee, coffee, coffee… (I may have a problem, but we don't talk about it...)  or tea of course, or whatever your drink of choice!
