Choc chip chia muffins


Never fear, chia is here!
One thing you may not know about the Columbian superfood chia is that it
belongs to the mint family and dates back to pre-Colombian Aztec times. Nutritionally, I use it as a natural thickening agent because it swells and becomes mucilaginous or slippery when liquid is added. This makes it a great tonic to repair the mucous membranes of the intestinal wall that may be depleted due to ulceration and inflammation. It’s more than a complete protein as it contains nine amino acids.
