Do these Blueberry Chia Muffins Freeze Well?

Yes, they do! I would place a few in the refrigerator, the night before serving these for breakfast, so they can thaw in time.

Can I use any other milk besides regular milk?

You can! You can make equal measurement substitutions for either almond milk or coconut milk.

Can I use frozen blueberries in these Blueberry Chia Muffins?

You may, but I prefer using fresh blueberries only because I find the purplish blue coloring starts to spread in the batter when the blueberries thaw.

Can I use this batter to make this Blueberry Oats Chia Bread instead?

Yes! The only difference will be a longer baking time. I like using these mini loaf pans

to share loaves with friends, or if you prefer larger loaves, this loaf pan

works great.

Any secrets to making fluffy muffins?

Shhhh! Yes!

Never overmix your batter. Mix it till it’s just combined.

And combine the ingredients by hand and not with a stand mixer or hand mixer.

You will see the difference!
