Mesquite Chocolate Chia Seed Muffins

I had a lot of chia seed and mesquite powder laying around which I barely use, so when I found this recipe, I was definitely interested in trying it out. These are tasty, healthy, and gluten-free. I would be down for making these again sometime.

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes

Gluten-free pancakes without any “bad” sugars

(from Nourishing Days)

This makes ~4-5 servings

I followed the recipe, using:
4 organic, omega-3 eggs
1 cup organic almond milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of stevia
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

Served with raw organic agave syrup

Fluffy! It was good. It has a bit of an egg sponginess to it. There was a lot, so I froze the leftovers and stuck them in the toaster to warm them up after, and they tasted just as good.
