These beautiful, light and refreshing muffins are perfect for springtime!
They are sweet, tart and the chia seeds add an extra boost of fiber and are packed full of omega 3 fatty acids. I also added Marine Collagen which can also help to maintain healthy hair, skin, and nails. They are like little rays of sunshine!
