Have you heard about chia seeds? Of course you have. Remember the chia pet? Yep, these are the same seeds. I guess they (I don’t know who) decided they were good for us. So they were taken off the chia pet and now they are served to us. Why? Because CHIA SEEDS are a nutritional powerhouse, full of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
This recipe also calls for Splenda. Splenda is a sugar substitute and is measured equal with granulated sugar. What that means is if a recipe calls for 1 cup of Splenda (like this recipe) you can substitute 1 cup of granulated sugar. Making this substitution will increase each muffin by almost 50 calories.
