Ch Ch Ch Chia!

I got a special delivery today!

But first...lunch:

Spinach salad with broccoli, feta and some nuts and dried fruit. Drizzled with a little balsamic. It was divine.

And on to more important things...my package! From possibly my most favorite people in the world...love opensky!

Inside was this!

My first attempt at Chia Seeds. I was so excited to try them! And because I can't get something and not use it immediately...Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins!

What else do you do when you have all of this sitting at your house?

  • 1 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds  
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup blueberries
-Preheat oven at 425 degrees. Mix up the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, chia seeds and salt. Then add the egg, milk, applesauce and mix until it can't be mixed anymore. As seen below.

-Add in the blueberries, slowly and carefully mixing them in. Pour into greased baking sheet or be a cheater like me and use muffin/cupcake cups.

-Sprinkle a little sugar on top and then put them in the oven for 20 minutes.

 and the finished product! They were pretty good too! Not very sweet like most muffins, but still very good. Almost vegan til I got a little crazy and added the egg. I like them, give them a shot and let me know what you think :) This is one of the first recipes I've completely done on the fly using very little direction, so I was pretty proud of myself.

and in other news...coming up on Friday I'm going to share my fitness plan that I'm starting next week AND fiance's crazy psycho push-up plan he has us starting this week. It's a little ridic. By the wedding I will apparently being doing 100 pushups without stopping. That makes me chuckle a little but we'll see if it works!
