Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, saving the chia seeds for the last second as a mix in (if not they can begin to form a gel with any liquid, causing your batter to become a little too thick or stiff). Evenly distribute batter into pre-greased muffin liners. Bake on 350 for about 10 minutes. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes and enjoy while still slightly warm!
