2) Line a cupcake pan with liners & fill the bottom with batter,
use a spoon to narrow out an opening in the middle
& spread the batter up the sides of the liner!

3) Take your CHIA JAM
add about a Tablespoon or so into the middle.

4) Take another spoonful of the remaining batter to cover the chia jam entirely
& smooth over the top with the back of the spoon!

Bake at 350 Degrees for about 30-35 minutes
They should come out cracked on the tops & golden brown!

This recipe made 11 muffins!

These power muffins will be dense
and not so “light & fluffy”, just an FYI.
