Recipe

I was so excited to try out these muffins when I first saw the recipe on Slim Palate.  Not only am I a sucker for a low carb muffin, I also love anything lemon flavored so these were right up my alley.  Plus I love the using chia seeds instead of the poppy seeds to add some extra protein and fiber.  They make a great breakfast on the go or afternoon treat with coffee.
