Ingredients

  • cup water

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1 ¾ cups gluten-free all purpose baking flour

  • ¾ cup coconut sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup plain fat-free yogurt

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas

  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.

  2. Mix water and chia seeds together in a small bowl; set aside until chia seed gel is thickened, about 10 minutes.

  3. Combine flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk chia gel, yogurt, oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture just until batter is moistened. Fold bananas and walnuts into batter. Fill muffin cups 2/3-full with batter.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Cool muffins for 5 minutes in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
