Chia Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Ryan and I have joined the chia seed epidemic.  I tweaked a few recipes to our liking and we have been enjoying these chia banana oatmeal muffins (made with no butter, oil, or sugar!) for a quick and easy breakfast.

Chia Banana Oatmeal Muffins

2 tablespoons chia seeds
3/4 cup flour (could use whole wheat)
3/4 cup oatmeal
2 teaspoons cinnamon (optional)
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup applesauce
1 egg

Combine chia seeds, flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, and baking soda.  Mix bananas, honey, vanilla, applesauce, and egg.  Combine wet and dry ingredients.  Bake in greased muffin pan at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.  Makes 1 dozen moist and delicious muffins.
