Lemon Chia Seed Muffins (makes 12 muffins)

Lemon chia seed muffins
If you have some of our Health Connection Chia seeds in your cupboard, why not try this recipe.   The perfect thing to test them out.  You can’t really even taste them.  The glaze on top is light and has great lemon flavour to go with the muffins.  You could omit the glaze if you are trying to be a little healthier, but it is just so good!
