|* Just as you would use eggs as a binding agent in baking, the chia seeds when mixed with water forms a gel that keeps your recipe together. (1 whole egg = 1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water.)|
Prepare the chia-gel. In a large cup or mixing jug add chia seeds and water. Stir well to combine, then refrigerate for 5-10 mins to allow the gel mixture to form.
Preheat oven to 200°C / 392°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine zucchini, carrot, capsicum, beetroot, corn, broccoli, onion and cheese. Add the chia-gel mixture, herbs and season with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
Line 2-3 x muffin tins with paper muffin cups. Pour mixture evenly into the cups. Transfer to oven and bake for 45 mins or until brown. Allow to cool before removing the muffin cups from the muffin tins.
- Enjoy these little egg-free savoury muffins hot or cold, on their own or with a salad or vegetables. They’re great for the kids lunch boxes, and make for a great bite with a Liquid Meal straight after your workout.
- Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are packed with essential nutrients and antioxidants, and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fibre.
