Grain Free Peanut Butter Banana Microwave Muffin

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  This will be a quick post!  First off, when I came home on Friday there was a box from The Chia Company.  I was so excited because chia seeds are a part of my daily diet.  Check out the goods!  I got a great running tank and some awesome Chia Shots, that are perfect for when you are traveling. They also sent me  a bag of their White Chia Seeds.  Thanks, Chia Company.  Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing some of the love soon in an upcoming giveaway!

They are easy to add to any salad, bowl of yogurt, oatmeal, cereal or smoothie… seriously anything.  Check out the following link for some more reasons why.

Ok, so back to my breakfast muffin that I have been eating in the morning. Below are step-by-step pictures to go along with the recipe.

I may sneak in a few chocolate chips or some sprinkles to try to entice my daughter to try it.   These days everything is better with some pink or purple sprinkles on top.

Do you use Chia Seeds?  How do you use them?
