Lime Chia Seed Muffins

Today we were having trouble finding something for lunch, so I made lime chia seed muffins. These muffins taste similar to lemon poppy seed muffins. The only difference is that they taste like lime instead of lemon.

Here's how to make them.

Lime Chia Seed Muffins


1 cup of sugar.
1 cup of lime juice.
1 T of lime zest.

3 cups of flour.
2 teaspoons of baking powder.
1/4 a teaspoon of baking soda.
1/4 a teaspoon of salt.
2 eggs.
1/2 a cup of butter.
1/4 a cup of chia seeds.
1/2 a cup of milk.


In a bowl cream the zest sugar and butter.

Add the eggs one at a time stirring well after each addition.

Add one cup of the flour then add the milk then add the rest of the flour.

Stir in the chia seeds.

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Grease or line a muffin tin and put 1/4 of a cup of the batter in each cup.

Cook the muffins for 25 minutes then let them cool.


  1. Chia seeds are so healthy but they taste so good too! They really are a favourite of mine. I like how you have used them here in this delicious muffin recipe. Thank you for sharing it with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  2. These sound delightful! Using chia in place of poppy is a fantastic way to sneak more healthy ingredients in, without really changing much at all. I definitely need to try this.
