I originally created these healthy lemon & chia seed muffins for valentines day. I absolutely love lemon & poppy seed muffins so I wan’t to create something as close to these as I could. They are incredible still slightly warm topped with protein ice-cream (I love Wheyhey protein ice-cream!) or leave them to cool and enjoy as you would a cupcake. I was not intending to add protein to these but I have tested them with a scoop of vanilla casein powder and it works well so feel free to add this if you want to make these protein muffins. I do not recommend adding whey protein as this can dry them out.
