I have made these a few times and found that this works best: 1. Add an extra cup of flour. I used regular flour once an oat flour once. Both were good. 2. Add an extra egg 3. Cut the sugar WAY down. I added none at all and while they tasted a little more "healthy" they were still sweet. 1/3 cup was a sweet muffin. 4. No need to soak the chia. If you feel you must, then you can make the batter as described and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. It will thicken up! I am pregnant and watching my carb intake but I LOVE bread so I have been experimenting. This makes a really healthy muffin! If you choose to use oatmeal + oatmeal flour (just grind some up) there are almost 4 grams of protein in each one of these (with the extra egg as well). I liked it!!

First off, in order to get the health benefits of Chia seeds, they need to be soaked. The longer they soak the more health benefits you get. So I highly recommend adding the chia seeds to the orange juice and let it sit for at least 10 minutes or longer. While mixing the wet ingredients, I thought there was ALOT of liquid for only one cup of flour. But I went ahead and followed the recipe exactly. Triple checking the ingredients and amounts, as I really thought something was missing. It also seemed like way too many blueberries for the amount of batter. The muffins were really, really, really, moist, they didn't hold together too well and the blueberries are practically falling out of the bottom because there is no structure to the muffin. Looking back, I wish I added another 1/2 cup of flour, and used quick oats and less blueberries! If they did not have such a wet texture these would be 5 stars, they do have a great taste though, just did not like the texture.

Be sure to Soak the Chia seeds in the OJ for 5-10 minutes to engage their nutritional fiber filled value! I upped the flour to 1 and 1/3 cup (whole wheat of course, the batter was too wet. and decrease the sugar to 3/4 a cup, looking to lower the sugar content and they are still sweet enough! and I skipped the brown sugar and just sprinkled ground Cinnamon on top! Voila! Awesome crowd pleaser :)
